ctdb: make client requests more reliable under load

The CTDB Linux-HA/Pacemaker resource agent uses the ctdb client utility
to monitor the status of ctdbd on a given node, it does this using the
"ctdb ping" command.

Under heavy load connections to the ctdbd unix domain socket may fail
with EAGAIN, subsequently the error is immediately returned to the
calling shell.

This fix is based against the 1.0.112b branch. Feedback welcome.

Cheers, David
