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

No need! If DRBD thinks it's OK to go Primary, there really is not much
point in waiting.

If it makes you feel better, you can make your SyncTarget secondary and
reverse roles. Ultimately, everything is currently hinging on your
SyncSource being in a good state. You can check this right now on either
node so long as it's primary.

In the worst case, you can even start recovering your backup, but DRBD
performance will be degraded.
