[Linux-cluster] Workaround for breakage caused by xend bridged networking



Hi,

Attached (and inline for review) is a proposed patch to work around the
problems xend's bridged networking startup causes for RHCS as a result
of the init script ordering and the network disruption caused by the code
that creates the bridge interfaces used by xend.

If xend will start in the current runlevel and is and configured to
use bridged networking, the cman init script will run
'/etc/xen/scripts/network-bridge start' before doing anything else. This
will create the network bridges early--a process that entails briging down
and renaming interfaces, which causes all kinds of breakage currently--before
openais starts.

xend doesn't mind if the network bridges are setup before it starts, and
the bridges need not be removed by the cman init script when cman stops:
xend will remove them when it stops.


Ryan
