Fix filesystem mounts that are missing the nosuid option where they should have it.

I have these file systems mounted without the nosuid options set.

debugfs on /sys/kernel/debug type debugfs (rw)
/dev/mapper/KusuVolGroup00-DEPOT on /depot type ext3 (rw)
/dev/mapper/KusuVolGroup00-HOME on /home type ext3 (rw)
/dev/mapper/KusuVolGroup00-VAR on /var type ext3 (rw)
/dev/sdb1 on /home1 type ext3 (rw)

Do I set the option in the fstab files or set the files directly.

You can do it either way. If you simply want to add options to the mounts while keeping them online you can use the following syntax:

mount -o remount,newopts mountpoint
mount -o remount,nosuid /depot # In particular
