[DRBD-user] Ask some questions about the splitting of the dual master device

Hi Digimer

I found in the test that there will be a 10 second heartbeat wait after the
drbd synchronization network port is down. During this time, the new
data IO will not be synchronized to the other end. When 10 seconds later,
these request that waiting for synchronization include the master BIO
will be cleaned up and then returned correctly when the clone BIO
corresponding to these master BIOs is written to disk. In this case,
will the pacemaker with a stonith configuration finally decide to stop
the controller? But another controller does not have this data, which
leads to data loss.
