Wouldn't it be more useful to test the clustered LVM scenario (e.g.
using a block device benchmark tool to simulate VM I/O load)?

GFS2 and clvmd use the locking service in quite different ways - in
particular I/O on a GFS2 file system involves locking operations but
this is not true for clvm volumes unless they use a cluster aware
device-mapper target like cmirror.

I'd only expect DLM performance to become a consideration here if
there were many clustered LVM operations taking place on different
nodes at the same time.
