Ok, I have committed the updated calculation.  I did it in two parts,
one to redo the existing result and one to take into account the
additional factors, just because :)

Thanks for your help refining this.

A hybrid is possible: only if -s is specified, then 'trust' it as you
propose.  Or even another mount flag to make -s behave that way. But
even there, I still think you want a different number, as a kind of
minimum-size reservation, with -s as the upper limit still. At least,
that's what I'd want if I was to use it that way.

It all seems a bit over-wrought and unnecessary, and long past the
point of being a useful discussion; I don't mean to prolong it here.
