direct links of old sources may well be a few messages off.

SLES9 is missing the netlink connector,
which we use instead of ioctl to configure the devices.
we provide a "backward patched" connector,
which aparently uses kzalloc too,
but does not include the "drbd_compart_wrappers.h" ...

too bad.
copy the static inline kzalloc thing from drbd_compat into cn_queue.c.

but be aware that all of this (the "backported" connector module)
is but a very dirty hack. if you can, upgrade to SLES10,
or something like that.
