[Cluster-devel] [PATCH RHEL5] mkfs: Handle gfs2 creation on regular files



mkfs.gfs2 previously exited if the target volume was a regular file.
This patch allows creation of gfs2 file systems on regular files by
removing an exiting check. It also removes the check_mount() function and
replaces it with an fstat() call after opening the file to avoid races.

This patch is based on commit 9e213f6 upstream.
