rpm: automatically load the fuse module on EL5
The fuse module needs to be loaded before /dev/fuse can be used. On RHEL6 and Fedora the module is loaded on demand. RHEL5 needs to load the module manually. This change add a script under /etc/sysconfig/modules/ that loads the fuse module on boot and packages it in the EL5 version of glusterfs-fuse. One of the features of GlusterFS is to not depend on additional fuse userspace. The conditional requires on /usr/bin/fusermount is not needed, this command is never called in the current version (even though is it referenced in the sources).
