I wonder a little bit about your planned configuration.
With two nodes in the same location/room and a crossover-cable, the 
usual way is crossover dedicated to DRBD, [public|LAN]-IPs for service, 
heartbeat. The heartbeats can be configured for crossover and a 
serial-crossover additionally. 3 ways for heartbeat should be enough to 
avoid split brain.
