Hmm, ok. I'll look at this again. I'm not sure why DLM is still calling
itself EXPERIMENTAL since thats long since not been the case, maybe SCTP
still is, but I don't think GFS2 should be selecting EXPERIMENTAL
directly, anyway. It is rather easy to tie ones' self in knots with this
config language.... since GFS2_FS_LOCKING_DLM depends on NET && INET &&
(IPV6 || IPV6=n) && HOTPLUG then all those other deps must presumably be
set anyway, so I don't understand quite why DLM doesn't have those
available to it.
I'll dig around a bit and see if I can figure out whats going on here,

Steve.
