Yes, I'm not sure that we really can support link-local addresses (and tbh: I'm
not exactly sure yet how we should support them). Our address parser doesn't
understand interface names in the scope...

I could be wrong, but aren't link-local addresses really only supposed to be
used for things like neighbor discovery?

Some confirmation of the problem from the original reporter might be nice. An
strace of the mount command that shows a link-local ip addr in the mount
options, for instance...

> If I pass options -o user=user,ip=servername,noperm the same error 22 is risen.

That's expected since you're passing something that isn't an IP address into
the kernel as if it were. When "ip=" is explicitly specified then the mount
helper doesn't bother with name resolution and passes it on directly.
