[Linux-cluster] Use qdisk heuristics w/o a quorum device/partition

Hello all!

We are trying to set up a 20 node cluster and want to use a 
"ping-heuristic" and a heuristic that checks the state of
the fiberchannel ports.

Is it possible to use qdisk heuristics without a dedicated
quorum partition, as this setup would only support 16 nodes?

qdiskd fails starting:
Sep  9 14:37:15 ols017c qdiskd[25339]: <info> Quorum Daemon Initializing
Sep  9 14:37:15 ols017c qdiskd[25339]: <crit> Initialization failed

Although "service qdiskd  start" seems to be successfull (OK).

<quorumd log_level="7" votes="1">
        <heuristic program="ping -c1 -t3"/>
	<heuristic program="check_fc.sh" score="1"/>

Already tried experimenting with interval and tko but without success.

Any help would be appreciated.
