Haven't tried this, as we're using NFS mounts here (with ucarp). But what if
instead of using fstab to mount you put something in rc.local that tried
first one IP, then the other? Would something like

/bin/mount -t glusterfs ip1:/share /mount/point || /bin/mount -t glusterfs ip2:/share /mount/point

work? I frankly don't know if "||" will work as "or" there, but there's
certainly a way to do it.
