Description of Issue/Question

This is similar to issue #27160 but in the options


Basically, mounting a CIFS drive with a linux who joined an active directory. I am assuming that it should work with local group name with spaces inside too.

    - fstype: cifs
    - persist: True
    - mkmnt: True
    - mount: True
    - device: //share.local/share
    - dump: 0
    - pass_num: 0
    - opts: credentials=/root/.smbpasswd,uid=jenkins,gid=utilisateurs\ du\ domaine

Steps to Reproduce Issue

Running the state will properly mount the drive

          ID: /mnt/share
    Function: mount.mounted
      Result: True
     Comment: Target was successfully mounted. Added new entry to the fstab.
     Started: 12:13:07.855852
    Duration: 533.336 ms

But will not write a correct config to fstab ('\ ' instead of '\040')
Current behaviour

//share.local/share  /mnt/share  cifs  credentials=/root/.smbpasswd,uid=jenkins,gid=utilisateurs\ du\ domaine  0 0

Expected behaviour

//share.local/share /mnt/share  cifs 
 credentials=/root/.smbpasswd,uid=jenkins,gid=utilisateurs\040du\040domaine  0 0

This prevent the drive to be mounted at boot
