To get things like locking and coherancy.

This is a very common question, and the answer is the same every time.  If you want to have 
multiple nodes accessing the same filesystem, there needs to be the synchronization between 
them to prevent corruption.

This is handled by the cluster framework - so, effectively, to use a clustering filesystem 
you need to be running a cluster.
