I would translate this issue as "how to gracefully shutdown sbd to deregister 
sbd from pacemaker for the whole cluster". Seems no way to do that except 
`systemctl stop corosync`.

With that, to calm down sbd suicide, I'm thinking some tricky steps as below 
might help. Well, not sure it fits your situation as the whole.

crm cluster run "systemctl stop pacemaker"
crm cluster run "systemctl stop corosync"
