Easy one-line fix (change variable from type char to int).
Requesting ack flags and a management decision on what release
to fix it.

Patch to fix the problem

This is the patch that should fix the problem.  I pushed this
patch upstream to the master branch of the gfs2-utils git tree
and the STABLE3, STABLE3, RHEL5 and RHEL54 branches of the
cluster git tree for inclusion into 5.4.
Comment 5 Martin Banas 2009-07-24 04:26:24 EDT
Fixed in RHEL5.4-Server-20090722.0 with gfs2-utils-0.1.61-1.el5.

Examining file system
This program will convert a gfs1 filesystem to a gfs2 filesystem.
WARNING: This can't be undone.  It is strongly advised that you:

   1. Back up your entire filesystem first.
   2. Run gfs_fsck first to ensure filesystem integrity.
   3. Make sure the filesystem is NOT mounted from any node.
   4. Make sure you have the latest software versions.
