The retrieve_plocks errors are a harmless side effect of the failing mount
syscalls, which are returning ENODEV.

Are you using fence_scsi?  I'm guessing not since you didn't have
sg3_utils until now.  As bizarre as it may sound, it seems that
init.d/scsi_reserve may be applying scsi reservations on your devices,
which you don't want of course, and which would explain the mount errors.
I don't know how or why scsi_reserve is running, but you need to disable
it (again assuming you're not using fence_scsi for your cluster.)
