I use GFS on changeset 9029, but it craps out all of the time.  I get a
lot of soft lockups in the GFS and CMAN drivers, unsynchrnoized GFS
partitions, etc.  I'm hoping that all of the bugs fixed in 3.0.2 will
make things more stable.  (If not, it's bug report time.)  Even though I
would like to use it as the root partition for all of the VMs, I don't.

I also use NFS on a Xen 2 setup.  That one works fine, but the
performance is awful.
