Note: "permalinks" may not be as permanent as we would like,
direct links of old sources may well be a few messages off.

Don't build against git, wait for git to be updated to contain the build
fix (I have it already), use a kernel version that drbd git will
currently build against, build against a tagged release from git, build
against a release tarball, or use packages build for you.

Quoting http://www.drbd.org/download/development-code/

    You can browse the latest state of development
    in our Git Repository git.drbd.org.
    Note that sometimes this code might not even compile,
    but we try to avoid that. 

Sometimes we do a fix against the latest greatest,
but break some older kernels along the way.
