Hi Rowland,

I came across the same issue last week. Actually the newest kernel 
(wheezy/ ubuntu 12.04), the /proc/mounts does not show options that are 
setup by default in tune2fs (see the "Default mount options" below)

[root at debian ~]# tune2fs  -l /dev/xvda1
tune2fs 1.42.2 (9-Apr-2012)
Filesystem volume name:   <none>
Last mounted on:          /
Filesystem UUID:          571f5042-f210-45a1-9385-e5caf2f86e8b
Filesystem magic number:  0xEF53
Filesystem revision #:    1 (dynamic)
Filesystem features:      has_journal ext_attr resize_inode dir_index 
filetype needs_recovery extent flex_bg sparse_super large_file huge_file 
uninit_bg dir_nlink extra_isize
Filesystem flags:         signed_directory_hash
Default mount options:    user_xattr acl

If you want to have the acl flag displayed in /proc/mounts (and 
/etc/mtab which now finally symlinks to /proc/mounts), you have to 
remove the "Default mount options" with the command below and add the 
acl option in /etc/fstab :

tune2fs -o ^acl /dev/xvda1
