What is the actual algorithm used to assign these slots?

That sounds good to me. The thing we need to resolve is how do we get
from one to the other. We may have to introduce a new name for the lock
protocol to avoid people accidentally using both schemes in the same
cluster.

Can we not just pass the extra functions to dlm_create_lockspace? That
seems a bit simpler than adding an extra function just to register the
callbacks,
