Dom0 Stonith Helper for Virtual HA2 clusters

STONITH: New externel/xen0-ha plugin to handle virtualized clusters.
author	Lars Marowsky-Bree <lmb@suse.de>

	
# Instead of calling out to a physical STONITH device, the DomU cluster instead instructs the Dom0 cluster that it wants a specific node restarted or turned off.

# The Dom0 cluster knows - at all times, even with migration - on which physical node the DomU is currently hosted, and can comply with this request.

# Further, through this integration, Dom0 is made aware of the DomU intents, and its own monitoring and recovery strategy can take this into account.

# In case there is a DomU stop failure (due to a crashed hypervisor), split-brain or physical node failure, the Dom0 cluster can properly interact with the physical STONITH devices to faciliate recovery.

#
 If you use the Dom0 cluster to stop and start DomUs, the DomU nodes will cleanly sign-out of the DomU cluster and not trigger a fencing operation.
