cman doesn't allow the votes to be changed without deregistering and
reregistering the quorum device.

I have checked the code and I can't see any reason why doing it this way
would fail, if register succeeds then it allocates a new node structure
for the qdisk and populates it from the parameters given.

Is it possible that qdisk might not unregister the qdisk  when it is
stopped under some circumstances ?
