Yes 128M is by default but the minimum is 8M, so 8x2 jurnals = 16M + some
space for resource groups = 19M fs is possible with ~1M for data ... just
confirmed:

dd if=/dev/zero of=/tmp/test_gfs bs=1M count=19
losetup /dev/loop0 /tmp/test_gfs
mkfs.gfs2 /dev/loop0 -j 2 -J 8 -p lock_dlm -t a:b
mount -o lockproto=lock_nolock /dev/loop0 /mnt/tmp/

df -h result
/dev/loop0             19M   19M  840K  96% /mnt/tmp
