[Linux-cluster] GFS2 mounts taking a *very* long time

This patched version of dlm will probably resolve your issue, please try it.
See detailed description in the list earlier ( Subject: [Linux-cluster] [PATCH] dlm: faster dlm recovery )
And yes, mounts and umounts with unpatched dlm are proportional to N*N, where N is a number of files.

We've often noticed that when we reboot a single node in the cluster, the gfs2 mounts take a long time -- eventually getting the 120 second delay messages.  When we migrated to 6.2, the default mount script echoed the filesystem being mounted, and we discovered that the long delays were filesystem-dependent.  In particular, two filesystems were causing all of the problems, both of which had >1M files in them.  We also noticed that dlm_recoverd on one of the other nodes accumulates a lot of time when this is happening.  Is this expected?  Are there non-ilnear handshaking algorithms between the mounting node and the cluster that are dependent on the number of files?
