[DRBD-user] Kernel Panic occuring when drbd is up & (re)syncing

It appears that there is currently a problem with the latest 
CentOS/Redhat kernel. We have noticed the same problem when using LVM 
snapshots and a backup technology called R1Soft CDP.

Some related info:
http://bugs.centos.org/view.php?id=3869
forum.r1soft.com/showthread.php?t=1158

No sign of a bug at bugzilla.redhat.com

For now we have reverted to kernel-2.6.18-128.7.1 on which we did not 
have any issues for the past 4 hours. Previously, a few seconds after 
starting a 'drbdadm verify' the kernel panic would occur.

DRBD devs might want to check it out.
