Ok yes I see it now.

You are both correct.  I think a comment which indicates that one should pads
'-o dax' to check for 'old support' vs '-o dax=always' for 'new support' and
the test chooses which option to pass (based on the support it needs) to
_require_scratch_dax_mountopt()...

Sorry I was not completely following before!
