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

I stripped the -dev list, as this isn't a development question.

You need to provide us more information on the exact software versions
you're running. Preferrably combined with exact steps how to reproduce,
output from /proc/drbd at the various steps and so on.

Are there no error messages in the logs? An oops or something? Surely
there must be messages from drbd up to the hang, at least. What does
sysrq-t show?

As this might be specific to the SUSE kernel, I'd recommend trying our
internal bug tracking processes first.
