How does the presence or use of a quorum disk prevent queued buffers from
flying out and hitting the disk?  Typically, quorum disks have been used to
prevent (or detect) multiple partitions, as a primary form of cluster
membership, etc.

A SCSI reservation as a secondary quorum determinant is more like "fencing"
than a traditional quorum disk, but that's open to argument of course ;)
