Bad bad bad news... The biggest issue may be fixed now, but once a xen
file was opened Gluster would only write to one node. A smaller issue is
you have to use file rather then tap:aio and file is biggest and can cause
corruption in xen. There was one other issue, but don't remember what it
was right now.
