I'm not sure if this is what he means, but I've assumed that you can not
prevent data inconsistencies in databases mirrored by drbd.
You have an atomic transaction that completes on the primary node that
writes to multiple blocks
While replicating the changes on the secondary, the primary fails
The database on the secondary, which may become the primary, will have
inconsistent data, right?
