I'm finding a compile problem with the pre5 release.

This is running CentOS 4.4 under a xen domU kernel of

Are there any new requirements for the 5.0pre5?



See output below

I was able to compile pre4 but got an error on trying to load the module 

'drbd: Unknown symbol atomic_add_unless'



Any help on either issue is appreciated.
