[Pacemaker] How can I wait for a device to be ready?

I are doing some testes with OCFS2 running on a AOE shared disk.
The tests are going on a OpenSuse 12.3 with the following packages:

Thinking about the availability of the device, I created a ping resource with the aim to get the filesystem mounted only after the
disk provider is available.

This is my test configuration and it works fine if I start the openais by hand after the system is up with all modules loaded.

node cluster-1
node cluster-2
primitive p_ping ocf:pacemaker:ping \
        params name="p_ping" host_list="" multiplier="1000" debug="true" \
        op start interval="0" timeout="60" \
        op monitor interval="10s" timeout="60"
primitive resDLM ocf:pacemaker:controld \
        op monitor interval="120s"
primitive resFS_BACKUP ocf:heartbeat:Filesystem \
        params device="/dev/etherd/e4.1p1" directory="/backup" fstype="ocfs2" options="rw,noatime" \
        op monitor interval="120s"
primitive resO2CB ocf:ocfs2:o2cb \
        op monitor interval="120s"

However, if I let the machine reboot and start the openais during the boot process it wont work because the AOE disk is inserted on
the system way after the Pacemaker cluster get started and the ping resource is not holding the start process

So the question is, how can I make the Pacemaker wait for a device to be ready before trying to use it?
