I guess this shouldn't be helpful in this situation.
As I've already tried to explain before shutting down
pacemaker on one of the nodes - if sbd-device can't
be reached - should already be enough for the other
one to suicide.

One - not less ugly than other suggestions here I'm afraid -
thing coming to my mind is to right after stopping pacemaker
dummy-register at the cpg-protocol. If after that you want
to bring down corosync & sbd as well it should be possible
to do that quickly enough - as pcs is otherwise doing with
3+ node clusters.
