Looks like this flew under my radar, but just thought I'd mention that
it breaks the Linux-HA CTDB resource agent, which makes heavy use of
ctdbd command line parameters:

I guess it should be possible to have the resource agent generate a
runtime ctdb configuration file, but it'll likely cause quite some
headaches WRT multi-version support.

Cheers, David
