libperfuse(3) just states that "flags" and "data" are the counterparts of the mount(2) arguments.

While flags contains predefined MNT_* flags, the data argument is explicitly documented in mount(2) as fs-specific and libperfuse(3) doesn't describe it.

From a quick inspection of the source code in perfuse.c libperfuse expects that argument to be a string with comma separated value that has at least "fd=$int".

This should be documented.

Over to the author.

Manu, feel free to commit the text w/out worrying about the formatting
too much, I'll fix it up if necessary.
