qdisk master abdication does not work correctly in all cases
Last modified: 2009-04-16 18:56:14 EDT
Description of problem:
When qdiskd detects multiple masters, all detecting qdiskd instances are
supposed to abdicate their position and elect a new master. Unfortunately, a
logic error prevents this from occurring in all cases. For example, if qdiskd
goes to sleep, is evicted, and still thinks it is master, it will complain:
"A master exists, but it's not me?!"
Steps to Reproduce: Unknown; seen in overnight testing
Actual results: Loop with annoying messages
Expected results: Master abdication + re-election
Created attachment 292960 [details]
One way to cause this is to corrupt the quorum disk while qdiskd is running.
This is in my local git branch and has already been pushed to master.
