To allay your fears, keep in mind that the big new feature here does not
impact the current mode in the slightest.  Everything should continue to
work just as it has before given the current versions of dlm_controld and
gfs_controld.  So, there should be no reason for worry.  A version of
dlm_controld under development will enable the new feature.

The issues that arose from -next were completely inconsequential in
practice, so that's a moot point.

I don't know of any remaining points.

I think people will want to start using the new cluster4 components (which
require these patches) before a 3.4 kernel would be in a Fedora release.
So the motivation is to avoid making everyone build their own kernels and
allow cluster4 versions of things to be put in Fedora.
