I'm running a ZFS so LVM for the cluster is on top of that.  It's
fine, but an extra layer and whatever the LVM guys don't like about
/dev/zd* for pv's.  I've found people using loop mounts to get around
this, but I think that is double clumbsy, zfs zpool to losetup to lvm

this is working fine, I configured the nodes to use zfs storage driver
and that works perfectly.  It's just the drbdpool volume that is
convoluted and I was hoping for a more elegant solution.
