Reloading fstab

What command would I type in the terminal to reload the partitions and mounts in the fstab file?

mount -a
mount -a -o remount

the first mounts all partitions in the fstab that do *not* have noauto as one of their options. but I don't think it remounts if partitions are already mounted. the second remounts partitions that are already mounted.
