check_resource_systemd might break under certain conditions

Bug Description

During upgrade we called "check_resource_systemd "memcached" stopped 600".
Interestingly enough this broke at least once for me (likely due to a systemd bug). In short, "systemctl is-active memcached" seems to not work
correctly under some conditions. For example:

[root@overcloud-controller-0 heat-config-script]# systemctl status memcached
● memcached.service - Memcached
   Loaded: loaded (/usr/lib/systemd/system/memcached.service; disabled; vendor preset: disabled)
   Active: active (running) since Fri 2016-09-23 21:46:36 UTC; 8s ago
 Main PID: 25285 (memcached)
   CGroup: /system.slice/memcached.service
           └─25285 /usr/bin/memcached -u memcached -p 11211 -m 7383 -c 8192 -l -U 11211 -t 4 >> /var/log/memcached.log 2>&1

Sep 23 21:46:36 overcloud-controller-0 systemd[1]: Started Memcached.
Sep 23 21:46:36 overcloud-controller-0 systemd[1]: Starting Memcached...
[root@overcloud-controller-0 heat-config-script]# systemctl is-active memcached
[root@overcloud-controller-0 heat-config-script]# systemctl stop memcached
[root@overcloud-controller-0 heat-config-script]# systemctl is-active memcached

This breaks at least check_resource_systemd because it will bail with:
ERROR - memcached not found to be systemd managed.

For now I set the importance to medium, because I think I can work around it.

I have seen this issue with the mongod service as well. I wonder if this has to do with systemd and pacemaker interaction (i.e. when pacemaker adds a drop-in file) and systemd gets confused?
