The rsize & wsize are not particularly large, but should be removed
anyway as this will allow the client & server to negotiate the optimum
size (524288 on mine).  The bg option will only make any difference when
mounting, so won't be impacting you here - it should probably be left in
to speed up booting though.  I'd recommend specifying tcp in there too -
it's the default anyway, but it's best to be sure.
