Expected results:

I updated the man page in the HEAD branch of CVS.
The RHEL5 branch of cvs already refers to the correct mkfs.gfs2,
but I noticed that gfs2_edit was missing from the list and gfs2_fsck
had "(Still Missing)" which is no longer true.  I'd like to propose
that we open a Bugzilla record for RHEL5 and fix that in RHEL5 as well.
As for Fedora, I'm not sure which CVS branch it gets built from.
At any rate, the HEAD branch is now correct and I'll reassign this
to Chris to get it into a Fedora build as he sees fit.

Sill waiting for this to propagate to the mirrors. Not sure why its taking so
long, its fixed in F-8 though, which is released already.
