not recognize the other node, and timout wait_sync ioctl, is not the same
thing. not at all.

did you ever look at /proc/drbd ?

let me guess: after about exactly 8 seconds, right?

for some strange reason I don't remember the wait_sync timeout defaults
to 8 seconds. so if you mean to wait forever (for the sync to be
finished or the connection to be lost completely), then say
 drbdsetup /dev/nbd/0 wait_sync -t0

drbdsetup does not even look at it.
