I have doubts that GFS (i.e. GFS1) is tuned and well-maintained on newer 
versions of RHCS (as well as 2.6 based kernels). My impression is that 
GFS1 is supposed to be phased out starting from RHEL 5. So if you are 
running with GFS1, why downgrading RHCS is ridiculous ?

Should GFS2 be recommended ? Did you open a Red Hat support ticket ? 
Linux is free but Red Hat engineers still need to eat like any other 
human being.

I have *not* looked at RHCS for more than a year now - so my impression 
(and opinion) may not be correct.
