Patch for the gfs support in RHEL5
 
This patch should enable the gfs support in RHEL5 installations and upgrades.
I've tested the separate pieces (mkfs, mount) on the running RHEL5 system and
the patch should be okay.
There was a suggestion [1] to change the behaviour to copy lines with unknown
filesystem from the old fstab to the new one as commented. While I like this
idea, I'm not sure if it is now worth implementing in RHEL5. Opinions?

Can you test it by using an updates image and telling loader to load the
gfs module? That way you have a pretty complete test but without the
hassle of having to rebuild loader and a new image.

ok, I've just tested this using initrd overlay and manual modprobe and
it seems to work with one issue -- the last two columns get changed from
0 0 to 1 2. I'll have a look at it and also try to write a patch for the
lines with unknown filesystem.
