OK but does that mean that one we have patched this, the peer node will
wait in all cases this delay before fencing the node with problem, even
if this node is not dumping , right ?
So, the workaround that you propose is to be used only this way :
1. a node has crashed and was about to dump but has been fenced.
2. patch the post_fail_delay
3. re-start CS4 on both nodes
4. wait for a new crash and dump, and in this case, the failover
   will take at least the post_fail_delay value.

Am I right ?
