I am sorry we are kind of forcing this now, this was absolutely not intended. When I was looking what to cherrypick for the old version in Debian, I should have backported more than 3/4 of the commits, all being bugfixes relevant for normal operation, among them security issues (CVE-2008-4579, CVE-2008-4580 and others found via code audit) and grave functionality bugs like not working noatime support (what you really want on a shared filesystem, to avoid exclusive write locks on every file access). I should have asked on this list first, before uploading. GFS still has problems on high load, not fixed yet upstream, caused by DLM changes in linux-2.6 2.6.26 (2.6.25 works), which probably need to be addressed there.
