    Did you read Antons post about this?

    Why do you want a filesystem if you're not going to use any filesystem
    operations? If all you want to do is to split your shared device into
    multipe (static) logical units use a logical volume manager.

    If you _do_ need a filesystem, use something like gfs. Have you looked
    at it at all?
