Does this look correct? As Dave says this has not changed for some time.
It seems that every time we try to get this right, there is always some
corner case that is missed :( 

We can't make GFS2_FS depend on DLM as otherwise there would be no
reason to have GFS2_FS_LOCKING_DLM, at least if I've understood the
issue here correctly. So I've come up with the following... does it look
ok?
