New transitions (re-calculation of cluster status) are triggered by
changes in the CIB. last-lrm-refresh isn't really special in any way,
it's just a value that can be changed arbitrarily to trigger a new
transition when nothing "real" is changing.

I'm not sure what would actually be setting it these days; its use has
almost vanished in recent code. I think it was used more commonly for
clean-ups in the past.
