Re: [Cluster-devel] [PATCH] dlm close othercons

This patch addresses a problem introduced with the last round of
lowcomms patches where the 'othercon' connections do not get freed when
the DLM shuts down.

This results in the error message
"slab error in kmem_cache_destroy(): cache `dlm_conn': Can't free all
objects"

and the DLM cannot be restarted without a system reboot.

See bz#428119

this doesn't look right...

shouldn't we free the con->other _before_ we free con?

That's what we were doing before applying all that patch set that removed the original kmem_cache_free...
