Hm, personally I would expect that an "update" option would only update
the options  specify, and leave ALL others unchanged. So the "-o
current" syntax would be the default.

MAYBE a special case could be made in case only -u is given and no other
options, that then the fstab options are used, but the "-o fstab" syntax
to make that explicit seems better to me.
