Ok I uncovered some other ugliness, when you go to run dlm_lowcomms_close when
shutting down, you will get stuck in an infinite loop, because we had previously
run dlm_lowcomms_stop when clvmd stopped, so we have freed all of our
connections and we pull a garbage connection off of the idr, because we don't
init it until we go to start the lowcomms again.  So this is the same patch as
before, except instead of init'ing the idr everytime we start lowcomms, we init
it when we stop lowcomms so we don't have to worry about this kind of problem.
Thank you,
