For whoever is interested, I implemented the above and pushed to:
https://github.com/amir73il/unionmount-testsuite/commits/mntopts

There are a few more corner cases I dealt with that are not mentioned above
(e.g. "redirect_dir=nofollow") as well as minor changes to "index" <=> --verify
dependency. For more details, see the commit message of attached patch.

There are a lot of combinations (mount options/module params/test options)
to test. I tested some manually, but might have missed something.

Thanks,
Amir.

Subject: [PATCH] Add support for user defined mount options

Until this change, the mount options used for an overalyfs mount where
determined by:
1) Support in the kernel by checking module params
2) Test run options: --xdev, --verify, --xino, --meta

Apart from determining the overlayfs mount options, the test run options
also impact the test logic.  For example, after an operation that changes
a lower file metadata, the test verifies that an upper file exists.
Without --meta, the test verifies that the upper file has data, while
with --meta, the test verifies that the upper file does not have data.

The following test options are implied from overlayfs module parameters:
1) xino_auto=Y => --xino
2) metacopy=Y => --metacopy

Add support for adding arbitrary overalyfs mount options with the
environment variable UNIONMOUNT_MNTOPTIONS.

The user provided mount options will be used for an overalyfs mount
and extra mount options could be added on top of them with the existing
test run options (e.g. --meta).

In order to adapt the test logic to the effective mount options, the
following mount options imply the respective test options:
1) "redirect_dir="<NOT "on"> => --xdev
2) "nfs_export=on" => "index=on" => --verify
3) "xino=on" => --xino
4) "metacopy=on" => --meta

When mount and test options are in conflict, the test options wins.
For example: "metacopy=off" and --meta result in metacopy enabled.

Features disabled by mount options override module parameter.
For example: "metacopy=off" and metacopy=Y result in metacopy disabled.

The conflict resolution of "index=off" and --verify is a special case.
The test option --verify activates test verifications that are executed
after every filesystem operation.  Some of those verification may fail
on multi layer tests with index feature disabled due to broken hardlinks.

Until this change, --verify would auto enable the index feature, so
verifications will not fail in multi layer tests.  When mount option
"index=off" is provided, --verify does not auto enable index feature.

To conform with behavior of test options --xino and --meta, the --verify
test option is now also implied when index feature is enabled by default
via module parameter and not only by mount option.
