[PATCH] Ext2 is not Ext3

Try to mount filesystems as ext3
Preupgrade failed for me, since anaconda couldn't read the kickstart file from my /boot partition. It turned out that it fails an attempt to mount -t ext2 /boot due to unsupported optional features. If I remember correctly, it did not fail all of my repeated attempts, but in the end I couldn't get the F-10 kernel mount my ext3 /boot with -t ext2. I had to work around by removing the journal with tune2fs -o ^has_journal, after which the upgrade completed successfully.
Attached patch tries to address the problem.
We should probably do better and switch to just doing mount -t auto at this point as we're using real mount(8) as opposed to calling mount(2) ourselves
Yes, that certainly makes sense.
This will be fixed in the next build of anaconda. Thanks for the bug report.
