* Significant latency improvement: Implemented sane default CPU bindings (affinity mask) of threads, and added the tuning option 'cpu-mask'. Any chance of rolling this enhancement into the 8.0 series? I currently have my own script to set the cpu affinity. But it would be much nicer and cleaner to use a facility built into drbd.
