I don't see what this would have to do with things, and I'm not sure
what exactly this refers to, anyways.

First you have to convince me that DRBD actually causes corruption here.
It may well be that it simply mirrors corruption happening above the
DRBD layer.

There are no partial writes on the DRBD layer.  And I'm not sure what
you mean with "lock the disk" in this context, either.
