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

Why don't you use ethernet bonding in failover mode ?

modprobe bonding mode=1
ifconfig bond0
ifenslave bond0 eth0 eth1

Never tried it with DRBD but I don't see why it couldn't work.
