This is a double announcement for release candidates in both
code branches.
I will advertise the new features with the announcement of the
final releases. This is rather the public call for users to
test these releases on their staging systems.

8.2.7rc2 (api:86/proto:86-88)
 * Fixed possible Oops on connection loss during sync handshake
 * Fixed various possible deadlocks in the disconnect/reconnect and
   online-verify code
 * Fixed possible access-after-free
 * Added support for TCP buffer autotuning
 * Added support for AF_SCI aka "Super Sockets"
 * Added support for IPV6
 * latency improvements
 * Support for using barriers to enforce write ordering on the secondary
   node. New config options: no-disk-barrier, no-disk-drain
 * Merged all changes from 8.0.12 -> 8.0.14 into 8.2


8.0.14rc1 (api:86/proto:86)
 * fixed some access-after-free corner cases
 * fixed some potential deadlocks on state changes
 * don't use bounce buffers (reduce unnecessary buffer page bounces on 32bit)
 * properly serialize IO operations on the whole bitmap
 * reduce race possibilities in our thread restart code
 * linux 2.6.27 compatibility
 * latency improvements using TCP_QUICKACK
 * reduced spurious coding differrences between drbd-8.0 and drbd-8.2
 * drbdsetup now checks for /proc/drbd instead of playing netlink ping-pong
   to determin whether the drbd kernel module is present.
 * fixed (harmless but annoying) stack corruption in drbdadm
 * adjusted timeouts on 'detach' and 'down'
 * fixed unit conversion of disk size configuration parameter
 * fixed drbdadm/drbdsetup default unit mismatch
   for disk size configuration parameter
 * drbd.spec file update
