Comment 1 Daniel Walsh 2008-05-27 16:24:43 EDT
grrr having the mount command able to load system modules is just wrong...

Can't we just have the kernel realize there are gfs2 file systems around and
load the module?  

If I allow this, this would allow all confined domains that need to mount stuff
the ability to load kernel modules.
Comment 2 Chris Feist 2008-05-27 17:51:21 EDT

What can we do to get these modules to auto load when we try to mount a gfs
filesystem?  (without doing it in mount.gfs2)

Comment 3 Steve Whitehouse 2008-05-28 03:28:15 EDT
The modules do autoload when we mount a gfs2 filesystem. The problem is that
mount.gfs2 requires the lock_dlm module to be loaded _before_ we mount the
