[Linux-cluster] umount hang on 2.6.10 and latest GFS

I hit a umount hang running my tests.  It was running with
2 nodes mounted cl030 and cl031.  It has finished a test
and is unmounting cl030 when it hung.  cl031 seems fine
with the gfs file system still mounted.

The gfs file system is unmounted (not in /proc/mounts), but
the umount is hung trying to stop dlm_astd

Here's the stack trace:

So, it looks like dlm_astd is stuck on a down_read().

The only down_read I see is in process_asts().


So, it looks block on recovery of the lockspace, but the
DLM is not listed in /proc/cluster/services and
/proc/cluster/dlm_locks shows no locks.
