This is intended to be the final RC. It is inteded to build and work
on RHEL 5.x (where x >= 3), RHEL 6.x, SELS11SPx, Debian 6, Debian 5
with backports kernels, Ubuntu 10.04. 

I think all the issues reported for rc3 where fixed. Please provide
testing and feedback.

Please help with testing!

   fixed bit_size negotiation with drbd < 8.3.7

 * Fixed OOPS on RHEL5 kernels; By delivering a workaround for a bug in
   RHEL5's header files
 * Renamed --dry-run of connect to --tentative; plus alias in drbdsetup
 * Removed drbdadm --yes option
 * drbdadm got a "help" sub command, that shows the specific options
