Over the weekend I realized that the split brain event is quite
similar to a number of events we already signal back to userspace.

The invocation of handlers is also visible through the "drbdsetup events"

The attached patch creates an handler called "split-brain". If you
can live with that interface as well, I will commit that...

In the future I want to go this way:

  * Allow one to set the usermode_helper to the empty string. Then it 
    is still possible to get all events through the "drbdsetup events"
  * The "outdate-peer" usermode_helper sends an exit code back
    to kernel space. This is not yet possible when one only uses
    the "drbdsetup events" interface. This should get fixed.
