It would not work for scsi reservations. With scsi reservations, an
unfence operation is as simple a registering with the device(s). It
cannot be done remotely. A registration exists on an "IT nexus"; the
relationship between initiator and target. Bottom line is that a
remote node cannot register another node --- the registration
(sg_persist command) has to be run on the node that wants to "unfence"
itself.
