_netdev is information about device rather than about filesystem.
Would be possible to have this info ("this is iSCSI") in udev db? 

You know, all userpsace mount options suck, it's always fragile to
maintain mount options in userspace (due to namespaces, ...)

I'd like to keep /run/mount/utab as private libmount file. It would be
better to use mnt_table_parse_mtab() libmount function to get parsed
mountinfo + userspace mount options.

IMHO you can implement it as optional feature #ifdef HAVE_LIBMOUNT to
optionally use mnt_table_parse_mtab() from libmount rather than directly
parse /proc/self/mountinfo.
