Put the oder way around, if you chose to keep a module version < 8.4.5, it is OK to keep the corresponding drbd-utils version as well. Though we recommended to upgrade to drbd-utils 8.9.0 anyways. Users of drbd module >= 8.4.5 *should* upgrade to drbd-utils 8.9.0 (even though most of it will still work with drbd-utils <= 8.4.4 as well). Our .rpm package dependencies actually have the module package require the equivalent drbd-utils version, so that should is in fact a must, unless you role your own packages, or fiddle with the rpm dependencies. Our .deb module packages are not that strict, for reasons I don't remember the details of right now. Still the recommendation is the same. People who try to play with drbd 9 pre-releases *must* use drbd-utils >= 8.9.0.
