direct links of old sources may well be a few messages off.

you should use a threading aware mailer.
would make your threads more readable.

I just suggest that you have to be careful.

because I say so *gee*
because internal meta data is located in the last part of the device.
if the device changes size, the meta data changes position.
so it has to be moved.
_during_ the move, if something bad happens,
you might end up in a situation where drbd has to recreate it.
still, if you know what you are doing, no damage done,
but I'd rather avoid that...
