I'm using SLES11 SP1, but yes, locking_type is 3. There is no problem
with clvm as far as I can tell - it just doesn't automatically mark the
LVs as available. I have to run vgchange -ay to make them available.
After that, they work.

Some of my clusters are two-node so quorum isn't possible. clvm is
running with "-q 0", so I don't think it cares. (That's the default used
by the clvm RA.)
