Apologies, I had checked about half a year of Gluster mailing list 
postings before I started working on this, but hadn't re-checked the 
last few days.

I rather like the x-systemd.automount solution, because it works equally 
well on a gluster server as on a gluster client. I can confirm that it 
works perfectly in our case. The virtual machines also get properly 
started on boot once the /gluster filesystem is there.
