There is now (slowly) introduce another clustered locking support where
the instead of 'dlm' locking engine it's using  'sanlock'

It's targeting the 'many-nodes' clusters, might be likely worth to check.

It has some advantages over clvmd/dlm and on the other hand some features are 
missing (i.e. remove node activation).

But from the context you've show - it seems like it might be a good fit to 
start playing with..
