We need to use kernel 2.6.23-rc3 to do backups to a usb drive. Earlier kernels 
were not working. I have not tried 2.6.22 yet. Has anyone tried compiling 
drbd against 2.6.23-rc3? Here are the errors I get:

If drbd doesn't work with 2.6.23-rc3 I can try other kernels. If I have just 
done something wrong, please let me know.
