The rc-week was very quite. The important "feature" of this release
is that it can be built with Linux-3.7.

On the side of bug fixes, a few very exotic issues where identified
and fixed. In case you operate a huge installation of hundreds
or thousands of nodes, you will for sure profit from this release.

  All the others will profit as well though with a smaller probability.

In case you use pacemaker 1.1.8 already and use the crm-fence-peer.sh
mechanism, upgrading to this DRBD is strongly recommended.

Upgrading to this version is recommended if you prefer to stay
with 8.3 series.

8.3.15 (api:88/proto:86-97)
 * Do not end up in Unconnected state if the connection breaks at a
   certain point during the handshake (was introduced with 8.3.12)
 * Closed a race condition between promoting and connection handshake,
   that could lead to an inconsistent view of the peer's UUIDS
 * Fixed a deadlock related to request splitting racing with changing
   the AL size; when triggered the drbdsetup command never terminated
 * Fixed a race condition that could lead to a full sync, if connection
   breaks at a certain point while starting a regular resync
 * Fixed crm-fence-peer.sh for pacemaker 1.1.8
 * Now builds on Linux-3.7
