"auto" and "async" are the "mount" default so they aren't particularly
useful (but "sync" is the current default for "/etc/exports").

"_netdev" is useful because the mount will not be attempted if the
network's not up when it's used.

"user" is theoretically valid for all mounts but I've never seen it
used with nfs.
