That is expected and it shouldn't make problems (modprobe handles 
dependences, just insmod doesn't). If you compile the kernel without 
dm_cluster_locking, it would not use it and it would have clustering 
disabled.

That just means that you can't use clustering because you didn't configure 
DLM, otherwise it is harmless. I will redo the patch so that it tries to 
initialized dlm only if cluster arguments are supplied --- so that the 
message won't scare people.

You didn't mess it, I get the same message too. But it is harmless.
