Description of problem:
Ceph is a software-defined storage project, and it stores its data in /var/lib/ceph as a big set of files. The problem is that updatedb indexes /var/lib/ceph along with everything else on the system. This /var/lib/ceph location is typically *very* large, and Ceph users are not supposed to go poking around at the files in there.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. mount some large OSD disks under /var/lib/ceph
2. updatedb runs and indexes all of the OSDs' files
IO slows to a crawl
updatedb excludes Ceph data (add /var/lib/ceph to PRUNEPATHS)
Ceph also has a filesystem, so it would be nice to exclude the "ceph" and "fuse.ceph" filesystem types as well (via PRUNEFS).
For more background information, see a thread on the ceph-users mailing list: http://lists.ceph.com/pipermail/ceph-users-ceph.com/2014-February/037446.html

Thanks for shipping this change!
Would you mind excluding the "ceph" and "fuse.ceph" filesystem types as well, adding them to PRUNEFS?
