These addresses come from the openais multiring configuration.  The jump
from 1 to 2 openais rings is going to be challenging enough, IME.  As
Patrick points out, dlm-kernel supports up to 3.

How about this, once someone demonstrates a functional cluster running
just two rings and two sctp paths for the dlm, I'll bump up the kernel
limit.
