Bug#906216: fwupd: ESP filesystem detection code does not like autofs

Package: fwupd
Version: 1.1.1-1
Severity: normal

My ESP is mounted via autofs so that it's unmounted when not in use:

    $ grep /boot/efi /etc/fstab
    PARTLABEL=joyeux-esp /boot/efi vfat umask=0077,x-systemd.automount,x-systemd.idle-timeout=10 0 2

This leads to:

    # /usr/lib/fwupd/fwupdate --info 
    Unable to determine EFI system partition location, override using --esp-path

    # /usr/lib/fwupd/fwupdate --info --esp-path /boot/efi
    ESP specified was not valid: /boot/efi has an invalid type, expected vfat|ntfs|exfat

fwupd seems to be looking through existing mounts for one of the correct
type, which won't work where the ESP is mounted via autofs, since it's
not mounted yet...
