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

Hi Niko,

The structs we hold the configuration in are generated by the
macros in drbd/linux/drbd_tag_magic.h .

The readable definition of these is in 

That way it is ways easier to maintain this. Open coding it would lead
to lots of copy'n'paste errors...
