[Drbd-dev] Compatibility with 2.6.27

In 2.6.27, CN_IDX 0x4 is taken by v86d. Since this ID is used by drbd
also, in some cases (when vesafb is loaded) drbd can't be loaded into
kernel and vice versa.

This patch changes CN_IDX_DRBD to 0x6, which is free atm. This, of
course, could change in future, and should be watched for. Other option
would be to contact upstream and request an ID for drbd.

Take care
