[Cluster-devel] [PATCH] 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, guarding against calling device_topology()
and falling back to the default block size if the target is a regular
file. It also moves a stat() call out of check_mount() and into
main_mkfs() so that the result can be queried multiple times.
