I have nearly overlooked this patch...
You are right, it is definitely a good idea to have that.
I just need to change the tag number for the split_brain flag,
since that number is already allocated in drbd-8.2.0.
The question I have, what is the flag good for ? Do you envision
an future use of it ? otherwise I would drop it, it is possible
to have such an cn packet, that does not carry any futher data...
