Yes, it was added starting with 2.6.18-232

This one is still in patch form.  Some of our customers are
testing it in production now, but it hasn't made its way to
any official kernels yet.

If you're a Red Hat customer you should contact our support
people.  We don't have kernels built for other distros, but
as I said, the patches are all posted in various places.
The first place to look is the cluster-devel mailing list.
The archives are here:


The clustered unlink patch is here:

The self-tuning glocks patch is here:

The "large file" slowdown patch only affects RHEL5, so the upstream
code and RHEL6 don't have that problem.  The rhel5 patch is attached
to this bugzilla bug (not sure if it's public or private):

And as for fsck.gfs2, I think the performance patches are
planned for RHEL5.7.
