Merge branch 'for-linus' of git://git.kernel.dk/linux-2.6-block
* 'for-linus' of git://git.kernel.dk/linux-2.6-block:
fs/bio.c: fix shadows sparse warning
drbd: The kernel code is now equivalent to out of tree release 8.3.7
drbd: Allow online resizing of DRBD devices while peer not reachable (needs to be explicitly forced)
drbd: Don't go into StandAlone mode when authentification failes because of network error
It would be very useful if it is added to RHEL 5.X and RHEL 6 as well as the userland tools, such already seems to exist for Fedora Core 12, see
You'll definitely want to file an RFE SR for this as well.
Do we need a separate bz for RHEL6?
Our people with support contracts have opened SR #2017020
+1. Please add DRBD support to RHEL5. We use it in production on several servers.
Linbit/DRBD hs been added to the Red Hat Partner Center:
Red Hat will partner with Linbit to provide DRBD support, rather than include it directly in RHEL 5 (or RHEL 6).
