+OCFS2 filesystem
+OCFS2 is a general purpose extent based shared disk cluster file
+system with many similarities to ext3. It supports 64 bit inode
+numbers, and has automatically extending metadata groups which may
+also make it attractive for non-clustered use.
+You'll want to install the ocfs2-tools package in order to at least
+get "mount.ocfs2" and "ocfs2_hb_ctl".
+Project web page: http://oss.oracle.com/projects/ocfs2
+Tools web page: http://oss.oracle.com/projects/ocfs2-tools
+OCFS2 mailing lists: http://oss.oracle.com/projects/ocfs2/mailman/
+All code copyright 2005 Oracle except when otherwise noted.
+Lots of code taken from ext3 and other projects.

+Features which OCFS2 does not support yet:
+ - sparse files
+ - extended attributes
+ - shared writeable mmap
+ - loopback is supported, but data written will not
+ be cluster coherent.
+ - quotas
+ - cluster aware flock
+ - Directory change notification (F_NOTIFY)
+ - Distributed Caching (F_SETLEASE/F_GETLEASE/break_lease)
+ - readpages / writepages (not user visible)
+Mount options
+OCFS2 supports the following mount options:
+(*) == default
+barrier=1 This enables/disables barriers. barrier=0 disables it,
+ barrier=1 enables it.
+errors=remount-ro(*) Remount the filesystem read-only on an error.
+errors=panic Panic and halt the machine if an error occurs.
+intr (*) Allow signals to interrupt cluster operations.
+nointr Do not allow signals to interrupt cluster
+ operations.
