from [1] "An LVM mirror divides the device being copied into regions that are
typically 512KB in size. LVM maintains a small log which it uses to keep track
of which regions are in sync with the mirror or mirrors. This log can be kept
on disk, which will keep it persistent across reboots, or it can be maintained
in memory." - so they shouldn't be synced from start

About the 6 node cluster - do you really need to have it operational with just
a single node? If this is not mandatory it might be better to use different
votes for the nodes to break the tie instead of mirrored qdisk (one more place
for split brain) ... like 3 nodes with 2 votes and the others with 3 votes or
a combination with non mirrored qdisk (with 4 votes)
