Why would that have a positive effect? "nouser" just says that a user
cannot mount the drive. However, the drive is supposed to be automounted
during boot (see the "auto" option)- Also, "defaults" is entirely
reasonable, since it is short for "rw, suid, dev, exec, auto, nouser,
and async."

That said, the mix of "nouser,atime,auto,rw,dev,exec,suid" with
"defaults" in the OP's options is weird and useless
