Doc Text:
.RHEL for Edge installer image fails to create mount points when installing an rpm-ostree payload When deploying `rpm-ostree` payloads, used for example in a RHEL for Edge installer image, the installer does not properly create some mount points for custom partitions. As a consequence, the installation is aborted with the following error: ---- The command 'mount --bind /mnt/sysimage/data /mnt/sysroot/data' exited with the code 32. ---- To work around this issue: * Use an automatic partitioning scheme and do not add any mount points manually. * Manually assign mount points only inside `/var` directory. For example, `/var/_my-mount-point_`), and the following standard directories: `/`, `/boot`, `/var`. As a result, the installation process finishes successfully.

program log

Description of problem: 
Using Image Builder I've created an edge installer. When I try to create a custom data partion (/data) I get the error during the installation progress "The following error occurred while installing the payload. This a fatal error and installation will be aborted. The command 'mount --bind /mnt/sysimage/data /mnt/sysroot/data' exited with the code 32.

I've seen that if I create the data directory in a separate console under /mnt/sysimage and then making again mount --rbind /mnt/sysimage /mnt/sysroot the directory is properly created.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
- RHEL 9
- anaconda
- composer-cli v35.5
- API server status:
    Database version:   0
    Database supported: true
    Schema version:     0
    API version:        1
    Backend:            osbuild-composer
    Build:              NEVRA:osbuild-composer-46.3-1.el9_0.x86_64

How reproducible: everytime

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Select Installation Destination
2. Select Storage Configuration as Custom
3. Add a new mount point with Mount Point "/data" and Desiderd Capacity: 2 GiB
4. Accept changes
5. Begin installation

Actual results:
Installation reports  "The following error occurred while installing the payload. This a fatal error and installation will be aborted. The command 'mount --bind /mnt/sysimage/data /mnt/sysroot/data' exited with the code 32."

Expected results:
Installation complete with success.
