In effect, any write you issue in your domU is sent on the following odyssey: Xen VBD in domU -> loop device in dom0 -> filesystem in dom0 -> DRBD in dom0 -> MD in dom0 -> physical disk whereas what you could do, an what is recommended to do would be Xen VBD in domU -> DRBD in domU -> MD in dom0 -> physical disk See http://blogs.linbit.com/florian/2007/09/03/drbd-806-brings-full-live-migration-for-xen-on-drbd/ for configuration details.
