I know all that. I did not suggest that.
you don't answer the question.
I suggest you _build a module_ (that is just the normal make),
and intall that module (the resulting drbd.ko).
if you want, you can put it into your own deb, if not, just take it as
is an copy it to the appropriat locations on you target boxes.

why not just build the _module_ ?

it has not been used by anyone since ages.
it is not intended to be used.
I am even tempted to remove that target.
though it probably would be easy to fix.
you should just build the module.
sorry for reiterating that :)

you do not want to build the "kernel-patch".
you want to build the module, like all of us do.
the kernel-patch target was just a courtesy of mine
for people insiting on a monolithic kernel for some reason.
you want to build the module.
