Hrm. If a restart potentially migrates the resource to a different node,
is the failcount reset then as well? If so, wouldn't that complicate the
hard-fail-threshold variable too, since potentially, the resource could
keep migrating between nodes and since the failcount is reset on each
migration, it would never reach the hard-fail-threshold. (or am I
missing something?)
