Note: "permalinks" may not be as permanent as we would like,
direct links of old sources may well be a few messages off.

almost every kernel module needs adjustment for such a patched kernel.

to be honest, I have no idea, really. may be "easy",
may be "not practicably doable"; don't know too much about the ssi
kernel (yet).

you could:

get the drbd package of the openssi people, compare it with
the drbd sources of that time (unfortunately they did not provide
a patch, nor did they explicitly state on which version/date of drbd
-pre sources they based their modifications).
try to mimick those modifications with recent drbd source.

or get some openssi guy working on it again.

or contact linbit office.
