Hi,

Now that Fedora 16 has EOL'd we have little reason to keep gfs_controld
and gfs_control in gfs2-utils. They're currently disabled by default but
can be enabled with configure option --enable-gfs_controld which adds
additional dependencies on corosynclib, clusterlib (discontinued) and
openaislib (discontinued).

My intention is to remove gfs_control* from gfs2-utils.git before the
next release unless there are any good reasons to keep them around.

Just make sure it is clear from which exact kernel version it is
possible to operate without gfs_control*. so that maintainers will not
try to backport to linux 1.0.

I'd have to get confirmation on this but it looks like this commit obsoleted gfs_controld:

   commit e0c2a9aa1e68455dc3439e95d85cabcaff073666
   Author: David Teigland <teigland redhat com>
   Date:   Mon Jan 9 17:18:05 2012 -0500

       GFS2: dlm based recovery coordination

       This new method of managing recovery is an alternative to
       the previous approach of using the userland gfs_controld.
   [...]

Which was released in:

   $ git describe --contains e0c2a9aa1e68455dc3439e95d85cabcaff073666
   v3.3-rc1~77^2~4

So a little while after linux 1.0 :)
