Created kernel tracking bugs for this issue:
Affects: fedora-all [bug 1597827]
An HFS filesystem is not built for any Red Hat products except for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5, which is no longer in development and is in Extended Life Phase (https://access.redhat.com/support/policy/updates/errata/#Extended_Life_Cycle_Phase).
