"Split brain is a situation where, due to temporary failure of all 
network links between cluster nodes, and possibly due to intervention by 
a cluster management software or human error, both nodes switched to the 
primary role while disconnected."

About the only practical problem with *DRBD* split brain under pacemaker 
is that pacemaker won't let you run "drbdadm secondary && drbdadm 
connect --discard-my-data" as easy as busted ancient code did.
