`service drbd start` will load it for you.

find the line with SIGHAND_HACK, and determine if it applies to you, I suspect
it does.
also don't forget about redhat's tendency to set the kernel compiler as
something other than the default gcc (type "gcc" and hit tab a few times, if
you see other than just gcc, you'll likely have to define CC=gccXXX before
compiling the kernel and/or drbd).
