Note: "permalinks" may not be as permanent as we would like,
direct links of old sources may well be a few messages off.

missing Makefile in the japanese documentation.
doing make doc before the make install would help.

admited, our userlevel error messages could be more informative. but,
if you configure an already configured device, you get a "busy!" back.
I think this is valid behaviour.

however we possibly need to add a "ignore reconfigure with exact same
settings" to the drbd init script to be LSB conform, which iirc requires
a start on an already started "service" to be silently ignored.
