from scripts/drbd
|if [ -f $DEFAULTFILE ]; then

we introduced it only to allow for
ADD_MOD_PARAM to be overridden
at the point where we allowed for arbitrary major numbers that
at least seemed to make a little bit sense.
e.g. you could do
  echo "ADD_MOD_PARAM=use_nbd_major" > /etc/default/drbd
if you still want to use these
  brw-rw----    1 root     root      43,   0 2003-09-23 19:59 /dev/nb0
device nodes instead of
  brw-rw----    1 root     root     147,   0 2004-09-23 14:06 /dev/drbd0

thats all it should ever do,
and if it is not there, it does nothing.

your later mail refers to "insmod" vs. "modprobe"...
you probably forgot to "depmod -a"
