Description of problem:
This bug is related to bug 333961 and it causes problems during bootup (when
gfs/gfs2 is used as the root fs)

if you do a 
   mount -t gfs2 /dev/sda1 /mnt/gfs2 -f
mount.gfs2 doesn't receive the -f option and cannot do a fake mount

I suspect this is the case with all mount helpers in general, in that, they
never get the -f option.
