This is my first attempt at doing a `git format-patch --stdout`.
Hopefully, this is somewhat more presentable to git. Comments and
brow-beating are welcome.

Subject: [PATCH] Change mount method for generic/258
Use the built-in _test_mount function from xfstests so it will use
the correct mount options for xfstests. The script used a simple
umount-and-mount sequence, which caused a test failure on an XFS
filesystem that used both realtime and external log devices.
