system is to be mounted.
Under Linux 2.6.32 and later kernel versions, mount.nfs can mount all
NFS file system versions. Under earlier Linux kernel versions,
mount.nfs4 must be used for mounting NFSv4 file systems while
mount.nfs must be used for NFSv3 and v2.
-r Mount file system readonly.
-v Be verbose.
-V Print version.
-w Mount file system read-write.
-f Fake mount. Don't actually call the mount system call.
-n Do not update /etc/mtab. By default, an entry is created in
/etc/mtab for every mounted file system. Use this option to
skip making an entry.
-s Tolerate sloppy mount options rather than fail.
-h Print help message.
