Description of problem:
Similar to bug 89194 and 10503, It would be very useful to provide the ability
to specify additional mount options in updfstab.conf
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:

patch to possibly fix automounting

I would like to stress the importance of this enhancement. Since each

with then option 'noatime'
*** Bug 126893 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
As updfstab is no longer used in current releases (removable media mounting is
done via HAL, fstab-sync, and gnome-volume-manager), changes to updfstab will
almost certainly not be addressed.
