[CTDB and GFS] test: OK

After a bit of tunning of the ServerIron ports profile:

Port	Protocol    Keep Alive	Interval    Retry	
139	TCP         Yes         3           1	
445	TCP         Yes         3           1

The load balance (I tested round robin and least connections) goes very, 
very fine. I use just now round robin.

Also, the smbtorture yields pretty well in an RH5 with gfs2:
RAW-BENCH-LOCK --num-progs=32 -t60

ext3: ~ 6950 ops
GFS:  ~ 5620 ops

Note1: the gfs2 in the RH5 is a bit unstable with ping_pong tests.
Note2: the gfs1 in the RH4U4 is a a bit more slow but as a rock.

Thanks to all for the support,

PS: We have plans to test the CTDB over vmware.
