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

Ok, I'll change the "meta-disk internal" to "flexible-meta-disk internal". But 
just to report: with 128MB, it worked even with the former setting.

Standard Debian etch 2.6.18-4-xen-686, from package 
linux-image-2.6.18-4-xen-686 2.6.18.dfsg.1-12etch2. I briefly booted the 
newer linux-image-2.6.18-5-xen-686 2.6.18.dfsg.1-13etch1, but that one 
panicked even during bootup (not sure if it's because of drbd8, couldn't 
investigate further).
drbd modules are compiled from the Debian package and are currently 
drbd8-module-2.6.18-4-xen-686 8.0.4-1+2.6.18.dfsg.1-12etch2, i.e. a fairly 
recent version.

No idea, I did not compile it from source. Any other indication in the binary?
