The usual number of bug fixes. The first item on the list is a
bit worrying. Although it has no known impact, it might be a good
idea to update to 8.0.8 since the possible effects are not exactly

8.0.8 (api:86/proto:86)
 * Improvements to the bitmap code. (The old code might reenabled
   interrupts by accident)
 * Fixed a endian issue in the wirte protocol. C bit-fields are
   might by layed out differently on little/big endian machines.
 * Drbdadm's adjust forgot sometimes to adjust options values that
   where inherited from the common section, fixed that.
 * Removed dopd. It gets (and should be) shipped with heartbeat.
 * When peer authentication is enabled, you could trick drbd to send
   a state report packet before it authenticated itself. Fixed that.
 * Added robustness to resync pause/continue.
 * Drbdsetup should not report a random error if no netlink
   answer is received from the drbd module.
 * Fixes to error code pathes. ( drbd_drain_block() and lc_alloc() )
 * Fixed a possible OOPS in case one manages to loose disk and
   network concurrently. (iSCSI disk and network over same switch)
 * Fixed the broadcasting of state change events to userspace.


PS: This time it the tag in git is already there...
