That's GFS2 you're talking about. GFS(1) still lives external to the
kernel and has a different on-disk format so it isn't superseeded by
GFS2, in fact every FC4/FC5 install using GFS needs this module to be
in there when FC6 gets released.

There is one in Fedora Extras 5 (em8300) and GFS is in a bugzilla
review (#201077).

But agreed, there aren't that many kmods out there so it's really not
too late nor too much work to convert them to something better.
