DESCRIPTION

     The vfs_getopt() function sets buf to point to the value of the named mount option, and sets
     len to the length of the value if it is not NULL.  The buf argument will point to the actual
     value, and does not need to be freed or released (and probably should not be modified).

     The vfs_getopts() function returns the value of the specified option if it is a string
     (i.e., NUL terminated).

     The vfs_flagopt() function determines if an option exists.  If the option does exist, and
     flags is not NULL, flag is added to those already set in flags.  If the option does not
     exist, and flags is not NULL, flag is removed from those already set in flags.  An example
     of typical usage is:

     if (vfs_flagopt(mp->mnt_optnew, "wormlike", NULL, 0))
             vfs_flagopt(mp->mnt_optnew, "appendok", &(mp->flags), F_APPENDOK);

     The vfs_scanopt() function performs a vsscanf(3) with the option's value, using the given
     format, into the specified variable arguments.  The value must be a string (i.e., NUL
     terminated).

     The vfs_copyopt() function creates a copy of the option's value.  The len argument must
     match the length of the option's value exactly (i.e., a larger buffer will still cause
     vfs_copyout() to fail with EINVAL).

     The vfs_filteropt() function ensures that no unknown options were specified.  A option is
     valid if its name matches one of the names in the list of legal names.  An option may be
     prefixed with 'no', and still be considered valid.

     The vfs_setopt() and vfs_setopt_part() functions copy new data into the option's value.  In
     vfs_setopt(), the len argument must match the length of the option's value exactly (i.e., a
     larger buffer will still cause vfs_copyout() to fail with EINVAL).

     The vfs_setopts() function copies a new string into the option's value.  The string,
     including NUL byte, must be no longer than the option's length.

RETURN VALUES

     The vfs_getopt() function returns 0 if the option was found; otherwise, ENOENT is returned.

     The vfs_getops() function returns the specified option if it is found, and is NUL
     terminated.  If the option was found, but is not NUL terminated, error is set to EINVAL and
     NULL is returned.  If the option was not found, error is set to 0, and NULL is returned.

     The vfs_flagopt() function returns 1 if the option was found, and 0 if it was not.

     The vfs_scanopt() function returns 0 if the option was not found, or was not NUL terminated;
     otherwise, the return value of vsscanf(3) is returned.  If vsscanf(3) returns 0, it will be
     returned unchanged; therefore, a return value of 0 does not always mean the option does not
     exist, or is not a valid string.

     The vfs_copyopt() and vfs_setopt() functions return 0 if the copy was successful, EINVAL if
     the option was found but the lengths did not match, and ENOENT if the option was not found.

     The vfs_filteropt() function returns 0 if all of the options are legal; otherwise, EINVAL is
     returned.

     The vfs_setopts() function returns 0 if the copy was successful, EINVAL if the option was
     found but the string was too long, and ENOENT if the option was not found.
