In order to being able to establish a relyable process to mount filesystems
depending on the network (independently from the filesystem itself) for me it
looks like a good step to at least support then _netdev mountoption with
But if I specify the _netdev option with gfs it is just ignored and will not
Could you please shortly sum up or give me a reference where you described the
reasons for not supporting it with gfs?
For us (using gfs/gfs2 as rootfs) it would make things much easier if the
_netdev option would be available.
