Actually, that doesn't work too well. getmntops() also deals with
negated options (e.g. 'auto' and 'noauto'), and storing a flag in
an alternate location to avoid conflicts. Plus, all mount_* programs
use a default set of options, specified as an array of 'struct mntopt'.
So you can't modify one mount_* without modifying them all,
really.  The easiest solution is still to modify
getmntops() to be a one-shot function (i.e. you need to loop
to get all options), and have it use getsubopt() internally.
