+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #1102885 +++
Description of problem:
The undeploy process does several things,
* Decommissions the node from the cluster such that
* Its data is redistributed to other nodes
* Cluster nodes will no longer communicate with said node
* The node is shut down
* The rhq-storage and rhq-data directories are purged from disk
* The The storage node resource is removed from inventory
* The storage node entity, i.e., row in rhq_storage_node table, is deleted
If the node is down, the decommission operation fails and the undeploy process cannot complete. The very reason for wanting to undeploy the node in the first place may be because the node is down.
I have also seen users do the following when they want to get rid of a storage node,
1. Stop the storage node
2. Remove the storage node resource from inventory
3. (Optionally) Delete the rhq-storage directory
Once again, we cannot decommission the node and so the undeploy process cannot complete. The decommission operation has to be run on the node being removed. If we cannot do that, then we should fall back to calling StorageServiceMBean.removeNode(String hostIdString) from a running node. It can be called on any node in the cluster. If the removeNode() operation fails, then we fall back to StorageServiceMBean.forceRemoveCompletion() as a last resort.

Steps to Reproduce:
Bumping the target release due to time constraints. Work has been started
though in the storage_workflow branch.
