Depends on whether or not you have a user set size limit configured.
"check-resize" tells DRBD to check for possible backend resize,
and to move its meta data to where it would expect it
if it would attach now.
After the meta data was moved,
we send our new backend size, current exposed size,
and user capped size if any, to the peer.
Which will take the hint and itself double-check
if it's backend has been resized,
if so, do the same (see above).
Also, whenever we receive such size tuples, we check if it would allow
us to agree on a new size, and if so, do it right there.
