you read INSTALL?

it says:

   Note: On some distros (redhat/fedora typically), you first need to have a 
   look into ./drbd_config.h, and (un)comment some of the
   settings appropriately.

would you please just read drbd_config.h ?
there are some redhat specific lines in there.
let me quote the relevant part:

 // If your vendor kernel happens to have O(1) sched in place,
 // but autodetection of that fact does not work (e.g. RH 2.4.9 and some other)
 // simply add "|| 1" to the below line
 #if defined(MAX_RT_PRIO) || defined(CONFIG_MAX_RT_PRIO)
 #define HAVE_O1_SCHED
