Already done in the other thread.

I have another plea - since you are yourself successfully using v8, could 
you please post some information on configurations where it's working?
Distribution; kernel version, release, type (smp, up), overall configuration 
(like what kind of meta-data; or any settings that one would normally not 
modify, but you have set to non-default values)

That would help me and perhaps others to create a working installation and 
track down what components actually break drbd v8.

I am very eager to have a working drbd v8, so I am more than willing to help 
testing. Although kernel hacking is rather new to me, I have started to read 
some stuff to get at least a bit of understanding :-) (e.g. 
Documentation/block/* -- anything else to recommend?)
