That is not really necessary, because we use quorum (majority decides).
Cluster switch to read only mode I no partition has quorum, so
there is no danger.

You should fix the cluster and bring other nodes up again. 
But you can also force quorum on one partition by setting expected 
votes ("pvecm expected ..." - see "man pvecm").
