Hi Arcot,

We integrated drbd-0.7_pre5 with SSI. Currently, I've added a nodenum=
field in the drbd.conf to make it easier to make decisions during
startup since the hostname has not been set.

However, we plan to move to drbd 0.7 as soon as it is formally released
and remove the dependency on node number and use the IP address instead
which is already part of drbd.conf.

The changes in drbd are not much to get it to work with SSI, and we were
hoping to put it into the drbd cvs (Lars/Philipp?) once we remove any
user visible changes ( read nodenum= ).
