It gets the time the node was last fenced from CMAN.  When a node
rejoins the cluster, this information is cleared.

So, what rgmanager does is effectively:
  nodeX died
  does nodeX have fencing configured?
    yes
      wait for node X to be fenced or rejoin the cluster
    no
      continue

I think there's already a feature request open about it, by you?

Implementation-wise, in RHEL5, there's an event queue for service state
changes, and a function which broadcasts starts/stops
(broadcast_event()).  The difference is that in RHEL5, you can multicast
to all rgmanagers w/ one call - whereas on RHEL4, you have to open a
connection to each and send the message individually.

So, basically, it involves porting the event queue code and implementing
broadcast_event().
