This makes me wonder about timeouts. Specifically OS/systemd timeouts.
Say the node being shut down or rebooted holds a resource as a master,
and it takes a while for the demote to complete, say 100 seconds (less
than the demote timeout of 120s in this hypothetical scenario).  Will
the OS/systemd wait until pacemaker exits cleanly on a regular CentOS
or Debian?
