Full sync for drbd initial usually take a long time, especically
when network become the bottleneck the syncing. Simply skip the
full sync with "--clear-bitmap" may not the perfect solution
for all the cases. So this patches can be used to zero out 
devices locally instead of a full sync,two make consistent block 
device. This approach can be useful when lack of network bandwidth 
to sync.

The patches add one new option "--zap-devices" to "new-current-uuid" 
to zero out devices. Besides the change of drbd, also need to modify 
drbd-utils for the flag.

All patches are compiled/tested against SLES12.
