I currently use DRBD 0.6.12 on a two-node HA system used primarily for a
PostgreSQL database. The filesystem is ext3. We're moderately happy with
it, but elsewhere we are more pleased with the performance of XFS. The
only reason we don't use it on our HA cluster is DRBD 0.6.12 doesn't
work with XFS.

Since DRBD 0.7.x is already at 0.7.3 (++, if you include SVN), I wonder:
is DRBD 0.7.3 ready for primetime use on production systems, in tandem
with a Linux 2.4.x (2.4.27 or newer) kernel and the XFS filesystem? Does
anyone use this combination already and is either happy or unhappy with
the mix?

Thank you very much for your time. :)
