Nearly all on the list are rather exotic corner cases, but due
to the length of the list, it might be a good idea to upgrade.

8.0.5 (api:86/proto:86)
 * Changed the default behaviour of the init script. Now the init
   script terminates in case the devices refuse to because they
   had a split brain. Introduced an option to preserve the old
 * Fixed a bug where the local_cnt could get imbalanced upon a
   state change.
 * Fixed an bug in the UUID algorithm, that could lead to both
   sides in cs:WFBitMapT state. It was triggered when the disk
   on the SyncTarget gets detached and attached.
 * Implemented proper size checking on strings that get communicated
   with DRBD's netlink protocol.
 * Changed the maximal length of device names from 32 characters to
   128 characters. (udev based disk names might be very long nowadays)
 * Fixed the after-sb-0pri policies discard-younger/discard-older
 * When the resync speed was changed to a considerably lower
   value while resync was running, it could happen that we erronously
   decremented the local_cnt too often.
 * Fixed a bug in the UUID code, that caused drbd to erronously report
   a split brain after changing the role of a diskless node multiple
 * Both nodes ended up in SyncSource when a state change occured on
   one node while the disk state on the other node is in the temporal
   'Negotiating' state. Fixed got fixed.
 * drbdmeta's parse/scan code for meta-data dumps got fixed for
   huge devices, and an improved error reporting.
 * drbdadm had difficulties with option values of type string that
   start with an digit. Fixed.
 * Fixed a code path that should it make possible to unload the
   module even in case some of our receive buffers leaked.
 * The usermode helper program is now user definable. It is no
   longer hardcoded set to 'drbdadm'.
