I guess it was not intended, today the missing package suddenly appeared :-)

I installed drbd-dkms after installing kernel-headers for current kernel.

This is from drbd-dkms configuration:

Configurazione di drbd-dkms (9.0.7+linbit-1)...
Loading new drbd-9.0.7+linbit-1 DKMS files...
First Installation: checking all kernels...
Building only for 4.4.49-1-pve
Building initial module for 4.4.49-1-pve

Running module version sanity check.
 - Original module
   - Found /lib/modules/4.4.49-1-pve/kernel/drivers/block/drbd/drbd.ko
   - Storing in /var/lib/dkms/drbd/original_module/4.4.49-1-pve/x86_64/
   - Archiving for uninstallation purposes
 - Installation
   - Installing to /lib/modules/4.4.49-1-pve/kernel/drivers/block/drbd/

Running module version sanity check.
Error! Module version 1.0.0 for drbd_transport_tcp.ko
is not newer than what is already found in kernel 4.4.49-1-pve (1.0.0).
You may override by specifying --force.


DKMS: install completed.

after reboot, the system failed to load drbd_transport_tcp module, so i
removed it and issued a:

dpkg-reconfigure drbd-dkms

This time drbd_transport_tcp.ko was built and installed, and after
reboot all seems to work ok.
