We upgraded one server of a cluster to Debian Lenny, but DRBD 7 won't
compile with the new kernel 2.6.26:

scripts/Makefile.build:46: *** CFLAGS was changed in
"/usr/src/modules/drbd/drbd/Makefile". Fix it to use EXTRA_CFLAGS.  Stop.

I found a solution for the CFLAGS problem, but the next error is:

/usr/src/modules/drbd/drbd/drbd_sizeof_sanity_check.c:1:24: error:
linux/drbd.h: No such file or directory
/usr/src/modules/drbd/drbd/drbd_sizeof_sanity_check.c: In function
/usr/src/modules/drbd/drbd/drbd_sizeof_sanity_check.c:10: error: invalid
application of 'sizeof' to incomplete type 'struct disk_config'
/usr/src/modules/drbd/drbd/drbd_sizeof_sanity_check.c:10: error: duplicate
case value
/usr/src/modules/drbd/drbd/drbd_sizeof_sanity_check.c:10: error: previously

Is there a solution to get DRBD 7 working?

Another option is to upgrade to DRBD 8. But we have an out of sync cluster.
Is it possible to upgrade while the nodes are out of sync?

Kind regards,
