The purpose I was testing GFS and OCFS2 was for storing domU-fileimages on it with the result that it works fine with OCFS2 and doesn't work with GFS due to some loopback-mount limitations of GFS.

Would that limitation impact folks using phy: to access LVM volumes from the DomU (and mounting them directly out of /dev/mapper in the Dom0), or only those using some mechanism other than LVM/phy: for managing storage?
