I went through several reboots, probably about 10. The longest I waited
was about 10 minutes.
At one point, I changed the config file to 10 seconds, for every time
listed there (including the wfc-timeout mentioned by Diego). It didn't
seem to time out, and I waited for quite some time (at least 5 minutes).

dmesg showed drbd starting, ala:
Dec 6 10:14:23 files kernel: drbd: registered as block device major 147
Dec 6 10:14:29 files kernel: drbd0: resync bitmap: bits=292720365
Dec 6 10:14:29 files kernel: drbd0: size = 1116 GB (1170881460 KB)
Dec 6 10:14:29 files kernel: drbd0: Assuming that all blocks are out of
sync (aka FullSync)

/proc/drbd showed this:

No difference. After the initial trouble, I had to rename the startup
script. I'm working remotely, and can not boot into single user mode.. I
need ssh and have no serial console.
Anyhow, starting drbd with the following:
drbdadm up all
drbdadm primary all
Caused no difference. I would modprobe the drbd module manually.
It is hard to go into great detail, as I was obviously quite pressed for
time, and it was paramount that the box returned.
If you want, I can take the box down at night, and do tests. However, I
will need to wait for my new raid to finish rsyncing from the old drbd/now
mounted direct box. Once done, I can resync and do tests.
With the resync speed, plus the rsync speed.. I guess I can do this
I still don't understand why it always shows two drbd devices though. :/
