Adding +WildFly Dev <wildfly-...@lists.jboss.org> to the loop

Thanks for the explanation Rado.

TL;DR: A while ago Sanne pointed out that we do not set `node-identifier`
in transaction subsystem by default. The default value for the
`node-identifier` attribute it `1`. Not setting this attribute might cause
problems in transaction recovery. Perhaps we could follow Rado's idea and
set it to node name by default?

Some more comments inlined.

Thanks,
Sebastian

In OpenShift environment we could set it to `hostname`. This is guaranteed
to be unique in whole OpenShift cluster.

Granted, we set it by default in CCT Modules. However in Infinispan we just
grab provided transaction subsystem when rendering full configuration from
featurepacks:
https://github.com/infinispan/infinispan/blob/master/server/integration/feature-pack/src/main/resources/configuration/standalone/subsystems-cloud.xml#L19

The default configuration XML doesn't contain the `node-identifier`
attribute. I can add it manually in the cloud.xml but I believe the right
approach is to modify the transaction subsystem.
