How does your /etc/fstab looks like, especially lines with user

about it in mount(8).

Yes, you're right, specifying nosuid,nodev restores the ability to
mount for arbitrary users. However, it seems this was done auto-
matically in 4.0; why is this gone? Perhaps this should (more pro-
minently) be documented.

AFAIK this check was added by elad during kauth merge or sometime after it.
