I was wrong, I was thinking about the "daemon node %d stateful merge"
messages which are debug, but should probably be changed to error.

I guess you're talking about the dlm_tool ls output?  The "fencing" there
means it is waiting for fenced to finish fencing before it starts dlm
recovery.  fenced waits for quorum.

hp2:~# dlm_tool ls
