Please do
cd /lib/modules/2.6.18-194.3.1.el5/weak-updates/drbd83/
gdb -q drbd.ko -ex 'l *(w_e_end_ov_req+0x2d)' -ex q

and post the output here.

If it says "no symbols found", grab the debug .ko first.

If that should not be available, grab a LINBIT support contract,
and have us sort that out for you ;-)

BTW, in case you are unlucky enough to encounter some IO error during
online-verify, and DRBD detaches the disk, and you get unlucky again in
timing, you may then run into something else, which will also Oops, and
has been fixed only after Fix for that is in 8.3.9.
