Yep, factoring out the common bits.

The port is specific to the component using it (ocfs2, dlm, etc), so
defining port as a node property doesn't make sense if nodemanager is
providing node info to multiple components.

I expect each component will probably use another per-node configfs object
for component-specific attributes, using the common bits from the
nodemanager object.

ok

Missed ripping them out with the other ocfs-specific stuff.

yep

Right, those should be on the TODO.
