Did it build the module, too?

Our postinst script only builds the module for matching pairs of 
installed kernel and header packages.
I prefer this approach because I hate problems during postinst phase, 
which might occure when trying to build for all installed kernels if not 
all matching header packages are installed.

I always do
   modinfo drbd
and (after drbd restart)
   head -1 /proc/drbd
to make sure I'm using the module version I want to use.

Thx, but please only invest that kind of time if it helps with your DRBD
