Ah, thanks.

Red Hat have split `mount' and `util-linux' into separate RPMs.  I
don't know whether simply upgrading the `mount' RPM is sufficient,
but it presumably doesn't hurt to upgrade util-linux as well.

The easiest way to get appropriate versions of these tools is from
RH's rawhide distribution at 
RH have made some local changes to these tools, so an RPM upgrade
is definitely the path of least resistance.

I assume the versions in 7.2 will work as well.  I've mentioned this
on the website.
