'cman_tool status' will tell you about quorum.  But, if only one node in a
two node cluster is up, and you don't have two_node=1, then we already
know that your cluster didn't have quorum.

group_tool will tell you the recovery status of fencing, dlm and gfs.

Despite being used for similar things, they are completely different
commands with completely different implementations.  Since flock() is a
far simpler command, its implementation is far simpler, faster, and works
much better in general.
