these are not new, they are in current code, and they are even 
documented on winehq :-)
Codepage: if you mount a fs with a given codepage, you need that cp 
information to transform properly the filenames into unicode. Ideally, 
we should get this information from OS
ReadVolInfo: whether you can try to get the volume information from the 
attached device, or if you want to get the values from configuration
FailReadOnly: Windows allows in some cases to open with write access a 
file on a read only drive. Wine, by default, when it cannot open a file 
with write access, tries to reopen without the write access (unix has 
more decent semantics here). Setting this flag to true, turns off this 
DriveC: this is not a config option, it's the default label for drive C, 
when no decent configuration can be gotten from wine configuration
