Re: [Cluster-devel] [PATCH] mkfs.gfs2: Check locktable more strictly for valid chars

Looks good. Should we also be limiting the number of : to just one I

That's already taken care of with a check a bit further down in that function:

        if (strstr(c, ":"))
                die( _("locktable error: more than one colon present\n"));

Previously mkfs.gfs2 allowed any printable characters to be used in the
locktable name. This causes problems when the locktable contains special
characters such as '/'. This patch limits the locktable to alphanumeric
characters plus hyphens and underscores.
