I'm testing and tinkering with DRBD to answer all those 'what if'  
questions before we go into production.  While doing this I managed  
to get a node into the state where it is the Primary and the  
SyncTarget at the same time.

This has got to be a bad thing if you try to mount the FS as the data  
under the fs will change as the sync progresses, right?  I see a  
great opportunity for data corruption here.

So, is there a reason why this is even allowed by drbd?  I can't see  
a situation where it would be needed, does such a situation exist?
