True, but did not find any strange interaction with udev during VM shutdown.

This is what udevadm monitor reports:

KERNEL[1174.220256] remove /devices/vbd-10-51712 (xen-backend)
UDEV [1174.222484] remove /devices/vbd-10-51712 (xen-backend)
KERNEL[1174.224405] remove /devices/console-10-0 (xen-backend)
UDEV [1174.226964] remove /devices/console-10-0 (xen-backend)
KERNEL[1174.287215] change /devices/virtual/block/drbd0 (block)
KERNEL[1174.287267] change /devices/virtual/block/drbd0 (block)
UDEV [1174.295811] change /devices/virtual/block/drbd0 (block)
UDEV [1174.301983] change /devices/virtual/block/drbd0 (block)

Strace on the udev daemon gives only these:

[pid 7416] execve("/sbin/drbdadm", ["/sbin/drbdadm", "sh-udev", "minor-0"], [/* 10 vars */]) = 0
[pid 7416] execve("/lib/drbd/drbdadm-84", ["drbdadm", "sh-udev", "minor-0"], [/* 12 vars */]) = 0
[pid 7418] execve("/sbin/drbdadm", ["/sbin/drbdadm", "sh-udev", "minor-0"], [/* 9 vars */]) = 0
[pid 7418] execve("/lib/drbd/drbdadm-84", ["drbdadm", "sh-udev", "minor-0"], [/* 11 vars */]) = 0

and this should be 65-drbd.rules to add/remove symlinks in /dev.

Adding a dump_stack in drbd_release gives two possible code paths,
both from xen_blkback and the first one from workqueue being the
problematic one:
