coreutils-6.5: spurious test failure (rm/one-filesystem)

I've noticed a failure on one of the "check-root" tests on my system:

> make  check-TESTS
> make[3]: Entering directory `/home/michael/build/cu-build/tests/rm'
> mount: unknown filesystem type 'none'
> ../../../coreutils-6.5/tests/rm/one-file-system: failure in testing framework
> FAIL: one-file-system
> ======================================
> 1 of 1 tests failed

It seems to be spurious -- investigating the test script shows that it is
trying to use the "mount --bind" command, which is a feature not supported
in Linux 2.0.40 (which I use).

Anyways, using "mount" at all from a test script, even a root-only one,
seems unwise, as it tends to vary across different unix-like systems.
