Agree with Gang.

No need 'lvmlockd' in your configuration anymore. You could remove all 
"lvmlocked" related configuration.

I understand your root motivation is to setup virtlockd on top of ocfs2.

There is no relation between ocfs2 and lvmlockd unless you setup ocfs2 on top 
of Cluster LVM(aka. shared VG) which is not your case.

Could be the naming of lvmlockd and virtlockd mislead you, I guess.

Anyway, two more tweaks needed in your CIB:

colocation col_vm__virtlockd inf: ( prm_xen_test-jeos1 prm_xen_test-jeos2 
prm_xen_test-jeos3 prm_xen_test-jeos4 ) cln_lockspace_ocfs2

order ord_virtlockd__vm Mandatory: cln_lockspace_ocfs2 ( prm_xen_test-jeos1 
prm_xen_test-jeos2 prm_xen_test-jeos3 prm_xen_test-jeos4 )
