Okay, looked into it: When you loaded a DRBD9 module and therefore the

module is loaded then the v84 branch of the utils is used, which

So, 9 is fine, and for 8.4 I'd say that is how arg parsing worked, it is
"established behavior". There are several commands where you have to
stop parsing via "--". So for 8.4 I just fix the documentation. UG
updates should be online "soon", man-pages have to wait for the next
real release.
