There are a few. Not a huge number though, as most of the changes are
cleanup, performance and stability related.

GFS2 in RHEL6 supports barriers, and the lock_dlm module has gone away
(gfs2 talks direct to the dlm without needing a layer between the two).
Support for discards is also new. Also a long standing bug relating to
umount order and bind mounts has been fixed. Tracepoints for GFS2 are
new too.

I'm sure there was supposed to be a list somewhere in the docs, but
maybe not the release notes... I forget now where it landed up,

Steve.
