AFAICT, this will cause the backend to never switch to 'Closed' state
until the toolstack sets online to 0, which is not good IMO.

If for example a frontend decides to close a device, the backend will
stay in state 'Closing' until the toolstack actually removes the disk
by setting online to 0.

This will prevent resetting blk connections, as blkback will refuse to
switch to state XenbusStateInitWait unless it's at XenbusStateClosed
(see the XenbusStateInitialising case in frontend_changed), which will
never be reached with your patch.

Maybe the easiest solution would be to wait in the block-drbd script
until the device is released? Maybe using fstat in a loop or one of
the drbd tools?

Thanks, Roger.
