use direct block access (with ASM) for tablespaces.

Yes, I dont dispute the usefullness of OCFS for ORA_HOME (beside I think a
replicated filesystem makes more sense), I am just nor sure if anybody sane
would use it for tablespaces.

I guess I have to correct the artile in my german it blog :) (if somebody
can name productive customers).
