[drbd-0.7 from cvs 2004-01-31, SuSE x86 Linux 8.2, 2.4.24]

I tried building 0.7: compiling failed with:
  drbd_main.c:1352: error: `devfs_handle' undeclared (first use in this function)

After I configured devfs in the kernel it built ok.  Perhaps a note in
README or INSTALL file that devfs is required?

How safe do we think 0.7 is running on 2.4.24?  Shall I forge ahead
and use it?
