mandriva did include ("patched") drbd into their kernel.
thats nice, but then the out-of-tree build of drbd does no longer work,
because it finds the in-kernel includes...

you have to patch that kernel.

you can try and user the kernel-source rpm, then
play with the "make kernel-patch" thing of the drbd source.
but its been a while that I used it, so it may well break.

a drbd 8.0.6 util rpm aparently is already available from the cooker
section on the mandriva download area.

maybe you should simply "vote for the bug"...
and get your friends to do the same.
