Using internal meta-data results in a kernel oops. Using both the regular 
2.6.9 as well as the Xen 2.6.16 kernel. I have captured the oops over a 
serial line, so if you are interested, I can send it to you.

I have now built and tested 0.7.17 on the same setup of machines and I am 
successfully running now. So whatever issues there are in either drbd or Xen 
(?), they are specific to v8.
