OpenGFS 2.6 port

Attempts to port OpenGFS to the 2.6 kernel are underway. I've done a lot of the initial getting it to compile type stuff done, but we can always use more help.

Even though the sf news section hasn't been updated, we're still alive and kicking. I'll try to keep the sf.net news uptodate from now on.

Initial Work

Initial work has begun from the imported tree. At the moment the goal is to clean up the code and also to audit the tools.

Initial auditing has found serious security concerns in the imported 4.1 tree, including remote exploits. We have no idea if Sistina non-free GFS 4.2 is vulnerable.

Obviously we don't want to da a release until there is a secure OpenGFS.
