    The description doesn't make it clear on a first reading if this hook is
    simply for configuring the security pointer in the super_block
    structure, or if the hook is to be used solely for authorization
    purposes, or if the hook should (could?) be used for both.
    What do you think of the following text?
    Set up the security field in a super_block and determine if the mount
    should continue.
