Bug Description

The manual page for mount(8) mentions using "_netdev" and "no_netdev" in the options field in /etc/fstab However, it is not listed in the manual page for fstab(5) If "_netdev" and "no_netdev" are valid mount options that can be used in /etc/fstab, then they should be listed and described in the manual page for fstab(5).

Here is what mount(8) has to say about "_netdev"

              The filesystem resides on a device that requires network access
              (used to prevent the system from attempting to mount these
              filesystems until the network has been enabled on the system).

"no_netdev" is missing from mount(8), too. That can be fixed at the same time.
