Probably use ctdb_ctrl_getvnnmap() to retrieve a VNN map.  To see the
bits you need, look at the example in control_status() and
print_status() (in ctdb/tools/ctdb.c).  I doubt that you'll be able to
use ctdb_hash() and ctdb_lmaster() directly, because they drag in old
stuff that we don't want, but they'll give you the bits that you can
re-use in the lmaster calculation.

I hope that helps... and that I haven't put you on the wrong
track...  :-)

peace & happiness,
