Seems something went wrong with an unmount; gfs_controld thinks the unmount is
still in progress.  Does 'ps' show any unmount still running?  Does
/proc/mounts show the fs still mounted in the kernel?  What does group_tool -v
show about the fs's?  If the kernel portion of the unmount is done, and you can
unmount any other gfs fs's, then you should be able to kill gfs_controld, stop
the cluster on this node and restart it.
