What about https://review.gluster.org/#/c/3341/ and its antecedents? 
Libfuse used to be unable to deal with SELinux's behavior of trying to
issue a getxattr from within the mount call.  Have either libfuse or
SELinux fixed that?  There might be other local changes that we'd need
to verify in similar fashion.
