If no one else has asked for this, don't worry about it. I am pretty
sure that it is always 'hh:mm:ss', right? It never reports days?
Assuming so, I already went ahead and wrote a simple parser that does
((hh*3600) + (mm*60) + sec) and that's working well enough.

Having this type of info (setup for parsing by programs) in sysfs for
drbd 9 though would be a lovely feature to have. That is where we'll be
focusing our long term efforts.
