The two are more or less unrelated.  Raw devices in clumanager are used
for storing internal clumanager states, and have a minimum size of 10mb
each. 

Components of GFS (CCA, pool volumes, file systems, etc.) can not be
used atop of those two raw devices, but may be used atop of the same
GNBD volume (with partitioning, of course!).

rgmanager ~= clumanager+1

Rgmanager is similar to clumanager, but is a bit more modular: it
supports on-the-fly reconfigurations of services and uses CMAN+DLM or
gulm for the infrastructure instead of providing its own.
