Upstream patch for this issue
DLM is not part of the core kernel in rhel 4 and is provided as part of the cluster products so changing product name .z flags.
The code in rhel-4's version of dlm is quite different from rhel-5. I am not
sure if the changes in device_write (dlm_write in this version) needs the
change. Please verify. Thanks.

Here's a patch, but I don't have a way to test it.
I've briefly tested that patch and it works for me. It also looks pretty benign.
commit in RHEL4 branch a479ddb2fa97033ce44ce11ae28925c55b176a55
commit in RHEL47 branch d8417ee4673aa8c07f9d314704000e248081416b
