Philipp sent a patch that seems to work for me. With Philipp's patch you
should be able to just
patch drbd - make clean rpm - rpm install the new drbd.
I am not sure when Philipp or Lars will put the patch in the baseline (or if
they already have, as I have not been doing the svn thing) and release a new
tarball, but it may help them to have another "Patch works for me" vote of
confidence sent in. So please give it a try. :)
