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

It's not absolutely neccessary. You could operate with two drbd  
devices. I don't know if you could easily migrate then.
Migration sounds cool, but I think drbd and cluster filesystem  
overhead bring more performance penalty than ~1 minute downtime is  
worth in case of failure of one node. (Please correct me here if I'm  
wrong. Thanks!)

Look for OCFS2 and GFS, i think.
