I'm not sure if this is the right place for this, but probably we want
this fixed before 7.0-RELEASE
as it is the release that introduces geom_journal and it seems likely
that this bug will be hit often.

In short :
When doing mount update with "current" option, mount(8) treats
"gjournal" as mount option
and tries to apply it. But "gjournal" is a flag, and not an mount option.
This also affects "mount -p" case, where mount prints it's output in
fstab compatible format.
