Whoops, and forgot the threads edit for the brick instance config:

volume <volname>-io-threads
    type performance/io-threads
    option thread-count 64
    subvolumes <volname>-locks

I've been using 3.2.0 for a while, but I had a problem with userspace 
programs "hanging" on accessing some files on the gluster mount 
(described here on the list).

I downgraded to 3.1.4 (remove 3.2.0 rpm and config, install 3.1.4 rpm, 
add nodes) and it works fine for me.

3.0.x was also crashing for me when SSHFS-like mount was used to the 
server with gluster mount (and reads/writes were made from the gluster 
mount through it).
