[systemd-devel] Option "fail" mentioned in systemd.mount(5)

Hi all,

The systemd.mount(5) man page mentions an inexistent mount option "fail" in the
following context:

nofail, fail
    With nofail this mount will be only wanted, not required, by the
    local-fs.target. This means that the boot will continue even if this
    mount point is not mounted successfully. Option fail has the opposite
    meaning and is the default.

Specifying the option "fail" in fstab produces following message in the log:

kernel: EXT4-fs (sdc1): Unrecognized mount option "fail" or missing value

So the man page contradicts actual behavior. Should this statement be removed,
or what?
