- cman: use strdup instead of malloc+strcpy (code is more readable)

- Allow qdisk to update device name in cman using a new libcman quorum API call
- Perform slight better error checking of some update opertaions

Resolves: rhbz#735917

* All in all, this seems like a lot of patch for a very tiny problem or
set of problems in a very narrow use case (renaming quorum device).




I've chatted with Fabio about this. It's my opinion that this is actually the least intrusive way of fixing the problem. The other ways involve overloading existing API calls and adding state, which add not much less code and also lot more in the way of potential confusions and problems.
