That ifdef was added to stub out the behaviour we *actually want*
remount to have when it encounters an invalid remount option.
The reason for leaving it is in the next release we should have all
the other problems we discovered by doing this fixed, so that
code will be re-enabled. Hence the temporary #if 0 around it.

So at this point, don't remove it.
