do what you think is neccessary.
I suggest that you follow the steps outlined in INSTALL.

read it.
again.

n case you did not read it, in short:
install kernel-source.rpm (NOT kernel.src.rpm... that is something
different, and will not help!), configure the kernel source as your running
kernel is configured (see make cloneconfig etc.), maybe adjust the
EXTRAVERSION in your kernel source toplevel Makefile, and what else is
listet in "preparing the kernel source"...
then adjust what is neccessary in drbd_config.h, compile and install.

if it compiles fine but you still get unresolved symbols, then you
compiled against kernel sources that do not match your running kernel.
you really must get the kernel source preparation step right.
you really must get the kernel source preparation step right.
you really must get the kernel source preparation step right.
