mount.glusterfs: change the error message
In scenarios where a mount fails before creating log file, doesn't make sense to give message to 'check log file'. See below: ``` ERROR: failed to create logfile "/var/log/glusterfs/mnt.log" (No space left on device) ERROR: failed to open logfile /var/log/glusterfs/mnt.log Mount failed. Please check the log file for more details. ``` Fixes: bz#1688068 Change-Id: I1d837caa4f9bc9f1a37780783e95007e01ae4e3f Signed-off-by: Amar Tumballi <>
