At the present time a GFS2 mount can only be used either for local access or NFS file serving. Doing both can cause panics or file system corruption at present. This would allow a filesystem to be shared to Windows (via Samba) and Linux clients via NFS.
There has been some work in this area I believe but isn't there yet. I think this bug
This would finally allow GFS2 to be a filesystem with *no surprises*, removing one of it's last areas where it is limited compared to single node filesystems.
