Please also add it to cifs_show_options().

BTW, cifs is the last filesystem in mainline which is missing a lot of
mount options from its show_options() method.

cifs_parse_mount_options() is also ripe for some cleanups: it's a >500
line function and hacks like the "sep=" option should really be
exterminated.  There are _much_ better ways to escape the separator
charater than to completely replace it.  Like surrounding it with
quotes or prefixing with a backslash.
