That's really strange - it's almost like the DLM isn't responding to the
requests.  The open of /dev/misc/dlm_rgmanager is performed by libdlm;

"yeah, that device exists".  However, the device node isn't there, so we
go to open it and it fails.

If something happened to the dlm while rgmanager was trying to use it, I
suspect there's a chance that it could keep something held (preventing

up a lockspace in all cases.

In a clean shutdown, rgmanager should always be cleaning up the
