man chkconfig:
Each service which should be manageable by chkconfig needs two or more
commented lines added to its init.d script. The first line tells chkconfig
what runlevels the service should be started in by default, as well as the
start and stop priority levels.

# chkconfig: 3 24 76
# chkconfig: 3 70 8
You can modify clvmd's priority levels, so that it should start after drbd
(value higher than 70) and stop before drbd (value lower than 8).
Then, you should run
chkconfig --del clvmd
chkconfig --add clvmd

Be careful at other services that may depend on clvm, because you may have
to change their priority levels as well (to start after clvmd).
