This isn't good - the lock manager implementation must be the
one to decide what todo with readonly & shared disks. The sanlock
plugin, however, does not currently support readonly/shared leases
hence why it rejects them. We could probably add a config param
to allow readonly/shared leases to be skipped by the sanlock plugin.
