Right, I find it quite confusing and I may be fixing the issue in the
wrong place.  What I'm seeing with ext4 when I mount a filesystem using
the option '-o usrjquota' is that fs_parse() will get:

 * p->type is set to fs_param_is_string
   ('p' is a struct fs_parameter_spec, ->type is a function)
 * param->type is set to fs_value_is_flag
   ('param' is a struct fs_parameter, ->type is an enum)

This is because ext4 will use the __fsparam macro to set define a
fs_param_spec as a fs_param_is_string but will also set the
fs_param_can_be_empty; and the fsconfig() syscall will get that parameter
as a flag.  That's why param->string will be NULL in this case.
