after two years having problems with xfs on drbddevices, now we are 
using ext3. but at first again we had unreproducable kernelcrashes.
reducing the syncer parameter to 80% of maximal speed solved the 
problem.( we've a 100Mbit crosscable-connection between the nods and our 
syncerparam is now at 80M)
our fileserver is up now for over six weeks...

maybe it helps...
