Given cman etc. was written for GFS, it doesn't prove much that it works
with GFS.  Having an independent cluster effort (like OpenSSI) use the
underlying infrastructure presents a much more compelling case.  The
OpenSSI project has started to look into this but help from OSDL, Intel
and/or RedHat wouldn't be discouraged.  Also, having SAF layered and/or
ha-linux layered would also bolster the case as a general
