Bug Description

By using
sudo mount -o force -t hfsplus /dev/xvdf1 timemachine/

it keeps saying that

mount: unknown filesystem type 'hfsplus'

However hfsprobe is already installed. If I try the fsck it works fine:

sudo fsck.hfsplus -f /dev/xvdf1
** /dev/xvdf1
** Checking HFS Plus volume.
** Checking Extents Overflow file.
** Checking Catalog file.
** Checking Catalog hierarchy.
** Checking volume bitmap.
** Checking volume information.
** The volume untitled appears to be OK.

cat /proc/filesystems
nodev sysfs
nodev rootfs
nodev ramfs
nodev bdev
nodev proc
nodev cpuset
nodev cgroup
nodev tmpfs
nodev devtmpfs
nodev debugfs
nodev tracefs
nodev securityfs
nodev sockfs
nodev bpf
nodev pipefs
nodev devpts
nodev hugetlbfs
nodev ecryptfs
nodev fuse
nodev fusectl
nodev pstore
nodev mqueue
nodev autofs

which hfsplus is not in the list.
