DRBD always creates new volumes in an "Inconsistent" state and only
transitions into "UpToDate" if the resource is forced into the "Primary"
role on a node (which will cause a full-sync), or if the initial sync is
skipped for the volume. LINSTOR does not normally interfere with the
role of a resource (since that may affect the status of existing
volumes, may require unmounting existing volumes, etc.), the only
exception being the creation of a new resource.
