I noted in my original email that I was using gcc-2.96-110 (the version supplied with redhat 7.3).  I tried updating to gcc-2.96-113 but still ran into the same issue.  I am able to compile the kernel with both of these compilers using the steps you provided.

nope, it didn't. But thanks for trying :) 

Interestingly, I was able to get drbd to both build and operate by commenting out line 28 of include/linux/mm_inline.h:


So it probably is some weird compiler issue.  Guess I will try other compiler versions when I have a chance.
