Maybe the topic is a bit arbitrary here - but CLVM does _not_ support
dual-mount configurations. Main reason: it has no interface to the two
JFS's write caches... Its only intent was to facilitate multi-host access
to raw devices, a la databases, but as you say...

Exactly. 

The only multi-mount filesystem on AIX so far is the GPFS (General purpose
filesystem) running on top of the RVSD (Recoverable Virtual Storage Disk)
which only runs on an SP.
