During the boot process you can't issue ctrl+c no matter what. IIRC
somebody suggested to use boot options. Perhaps forcing a wait for
quorum in our init script is sensible if we allow a boot option to not
run cman at all. The other daemons will fail if cman is not there and
boot would be "unblocked".

It's a rare case since our init script itself fires up different daemons
automatically. A bit offtopic but perhaps it might be the case to revive
the idea that mount.gfs2 should spawn gfs_controld if required and not
running and libdlm would spawn dlm_controld.
