You can't mount subdirectories using the fuse mount.
I use bind mount to get around this.

Mount gluster somewhere (/gluster/vol01) and then bind mount
to where you want.

mount --bind /gluster/vol01/sally /home/sally

glusternode01:/vol01 /glusterfs/vol01 glusterfs defaults,transport=tcp,_netdev 0 0
/glusterfs/vol01/sally /home/sally none bind,_netdev 0 0
