Corosync should be able to detect if it was not scheduled for long time, ether because the process itself was not scheduled, or VM was not scheduled.
Corosync displays "Token was lost" if not scheduled for long time. Sadly, same message can be result of real Token lost on network. It is potentially useful to be able to distinguish between these two types of Token lost.
Result (if any):
When corosync was not scheduled for long time, message is logged.

Description of problem:
When corosync is running in VM, it can happen, that VM (and thus corosync) is not scheduled for long time (longer then token timeout). Because in such environments, it's very hard to find out, if token was lost because of network overload or because of guest OS didn't scheduled corosync process or because host OS didn't scheduled VM, it would be nice improvement to implement pause detector in corosync. Corosync then displays warning message, when it was not scheduled for long enough time (0.8 * token_timeout). This will give us idea, if problem was network or scheduling and together with guest load monitoring should give as idea if problem was in guest or host.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Pause corosync
2. Unpause corosync
Token is lost, but it's not clear why.
Message "Corosync main process was not scheduled for X ms (threshold is Y ms). Consider token timeout increase." should be displayed.
Verified with scheduler-pause-detector.sh
