Quorum disk works only when someone has a SAN proper, and even then, I
am pretty sure that a node in an unknown state will still need to be fenced.

This delays the issue, not avoid it. When Nicolas starts cman, it will
still fence the peer.

I feel *very* uncomfortable with the 'clean_start="1"' option. Making
any kind of assumption about the state of a node in a cluster is asking
for trouble.
