Hi,

      I saw this problem when i was looking at gfs as an option for an 
hpc cluster. Did you mount with oopses_ok? With that option, if one node 
has a problem, gfs mounts on other nodes too tend to hang needing a total 
cluster restart. Ideally, the nodes should panic when they have gfs 
problems and the other nodes would stay unaffected.
