I'm afraid stonith can't help you with this.

Stonith is considered successful once your stonith plugin reports
success. It should report that after having reset the machine. Whether
that box reboots correctly is not part of the stonith process.

The shot machine disappears from the cluster and how long it stays in
that status does not matter to the cluster. It does not expect a shot
machine to return to the cluster within a given time (sounds like you
expected that).
