The suffix isn't hard-coded or anything to do with cman really, it's 
just a way of distinguishing interfaces.

You need to edit cluster.conf to tell it to use the different name.

If you get despertate then you can always put the IP address in 
cluster.conf, but the output from cman_tool nodes doesn't look as nice!
