OK, thanks!  I'm trying to run gfs2 on 4 kvm machines, I'm an expert on
neither, and it's entirely likely there's some obvious misconfiguration.
On the kvm host there are 4 virtual interfaces bridged together:

bfields at pig:~$ brctl show
bridge name	bridge id		STP enabled	interfaces
vnet0		8000.00ff0823c0f3	yes		vnet1

vnet0 has address on the host, and the 4 kvm guests are
statically assigned addresses 129, 130, 131, and 132 on the 192.168.122.*
network, so a kvm guest looks like:

piglet1:~# ifconfig
eth1      Link encap:Ethernet  HWaddr 00:16:3e:16:4d:61  
          inet addr:  Bcast:  Mask:

          RX bytes:13394 (13.0 KiB)  TX bytes:13394 (13.0 KiB)

piglet1:~# cat /etc/hosts       localhost piglet1 piglet2 piglet3 piglet4

# The following lines are desirable for IPv6 capable hosts
::1     ip6-localhost ip6-loopback
fe00::0 ip6-localnet
ff00::0 ip6-mcastprefix
ff02::1 ip6-allnodes
ff02::2 ip6-allrouters
ff02::3 ip6-allhosts

The network setup looks otherwise fine--they can all ping each other and
the outside world.
