More advanced availability checks required for Arbiter

    Description

      We have a replica set setup with 2 nodes + 1 arbiter. The SAN storage in our primary's DC went down(ish), resulting in timeouts on I/O operations. Secondary node had detected that the primary was unreachable, but arbiter still marked the primary as available, since the TCP connection to the primary was still active. Failover to the secondary node did not work, causing downtime.

      The arbiter should periodically query the different nodes with an I/O operation to detect whether the underlying I/O subsystem is still working.
