[Openais] [PATCH] RFC: quorum subsystem

This is an initial pass at a top-level quorum system. As it stands, this
module doesn't provide quorum itself, merely a framework for setting and
querying it. I envisage YKD plugging into this rather than straight into
sync() eventually.

I've plugged this into the sync() routines rather than replacing them so
that quorum is itself a VSF, rather than a replacement - I'm not sure if
that is best or not. Opinions are welcome.

I've added an extra enum member to the service_handler so that we can
send IPC messages when the cluster isn't quorate. This will default to
NO (as now) but allows us to query and set quorum when we don't have it
.. a useful feature !

Any comments ?
