Just to pick a nit: there is no way to be sure a membership event might not
still be on the way to the dead node, however the rest of the cluster knows
the node is dead and can ignore it, in theory. (In practice, only (g)dlm and
gfs are well glued into the cman membership protocol, and other components,
e.g., cluster block devices and applications, need to be looked at with
squinty eyes.)
