Hi all.
I'm exeriencing a nasty kernel soft lockup on one cluster.  Have to
say I have tons of clusters using same config and all is working fine

To the point:

(it happens on  2.6.32 and drbd 8.3.7 too)

On the primary node it happens call tracing task blah blah blocked for
more than xx seconds... etc.
After investigating I have noticed that if I stop drbd on the
secondary node,  then the hanging node immediately works fine
Maybe it's related to nic used that is a RTL-8169...?
