[fedora-virt] DRBD and virtualization



So DRBD is upstream:

http://linux.slashdot.org/story/09/12/11/0048247/DRBD-To-Be-Included-In-Linux-Kernel-2633

Does this have any implications for virtualization?  It's just that I
notice there's a whole section in the DRBD manual about using it to
provide replicated block devices for virtual machines:

http://www.drbd.org/users-guide/ch-xen.html

(Chapter talks about Xen, but it seems like it would apply to any
hypervisor, although Xen appears to specifically support some features
of DRBD, such as drbd: block devices, and the ability to live migrate
when DRDB detects a failure)
