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

Just to clarify, you mean when the state is something like SyncSource?
Would it be safe to check to make sure the state is connected and
consistent, then do a drbdadm disconnect, make the lvm snapshot, then
drbd connect?
