ocfs isnt really worth spending time on anymore. iirc, even oracle no
longer support an ocfs/ocfs2 based backend store.

might as well consider gpfs ( the cost per machine isnt that high, and
there is reasonable assurances that it would work ).

/me is still thrashing out gfs2 though, and conga! and clusterlvm!
