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

Could you try a filter that finds only the drbd devices? And others, if
you have other PVs, but not /dev/md4 (actually, just inserting "r|md4"
at the very beginning should be enough).

Then, pvcreate /dev/drbd...; pvscan; and vgcreate.
