There is still some cleanup work to do, _but_ basically we are
feature complete for drbd-0.7. 

It compiles and basically works on Linux-2.4.x and Linux-2.6.x

So far no tests on SMP were performed. -- Do not expect too much 
on SMP systems with this release. This is one of the areas I have
to work on next. (Over the course of development we probabely 
 introduced some loose ends, but yes, SMP locking was considered
 during the whole development process)

Now it is your turn to help testing this and to write reproducible 
bug reports !
