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

No, I was refering to We as in DRBD Developers,
and could do as in "are able to code".
But I'd rather code a real fix than something that may appear to work
most of the time, and then possibly break in strange ways sometime later
when used in different ways.

We won't forget this issue, of course, but for now, sorry, recent DRBD
does not work properly on ppc64 with 64k page size.

Probably the mailman list indexes have changed.  They do that sometimes
in reaction to admin interaction or on updates  ;)
The post in question should be "near", though.

As that hotfix is no longer hot since ages,
we probably should remove any references to it.
