Note: "permalinks" may not be as permanent as we would like,
direct links of old sources may well be a few messages off.


as I found out recently DRBD still has severe issues using the sgi XFS
filesystem. The primary System will hang hard when starting the
Sychronization, the secondary is actually unaffected. The error is
reproducable on Kernel 2.6.10 and drbd 0.7.7 as well as on kernel 2.6.11
and drbd 0.7.10. The first setup is from myself and the second setup is
from a person that has the same error's.
DRBD is a great sofware and I'm certain that full xfs compliance would
bring it a lot further. 

Is there any chance that this issue will be addressed?

I'd be happy and willing, to help resolving this issue.
