The following mount options are supported:
iocharset=name Character set to use for converting from Unicode to
ASCII. The default is compiled into the kernel as
CONFIG_NLS_DEFAULT. Use iocharset=utf8 for UTF8
translations. This requires CONFIG_NLS_UTF8 to be set
in the kernel .config file.
resize=value Resize the volume to <value> blocks. JFS only supports
growing a volume, not shrinking it. This option is only
valid during a remount, when the volume is mounted
read-write. The resize keyword with no value will grow
the volume to the full size of the partition.
