[Cluster-devel] [PATCH] gfs2: add barrier/nobarrier mount options



Currently gfs2 issues barrier unconditionally.  There are various reasons
to disable them, be that just for testing or for stupid devices flushing
large battert backed caches.  Add a nobarrier option that matches xfs and
btrfs for this.  Also add a symmetric barrier option to turn it back on
at remount time.
