I don't think there's any reason for "Scanning for log elements" to take
any noticable amount of time or acquire many (or any) locks, so there must
be some bug, misconfiguration, or corruption.  You might try the

- make sure both nodes have umounted the fs

- load "lock_nolock" on one of the nodes and do:

  mount -t gfs /dev/... /mnt -o lockproto=lock_nolock,hostdata=jid=0
  umount /mnt
  mount -t gfs /dev/... /mnt -o lockproto=lock_nolock,hostdata=jid=1
  umount /mnt

- try running gfs_fsck

If all this works ok, then there must be something strange happening with
the dlm or cluster manager.
