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

As a starting point, in drbd-8.4.7-1 the drbd-kernel.spec file lists a 
BuildRequires of "%kernel_module_package_buildreqs", which ultimately seems to 
evaluate to "kernel-devel".

However, the kernel-rt-3.10.0-514.rt56.420.el7 package provides 
"kernel-rt-devel" and does not provide "kernel-devel".

For what it's worth, I think we've got it building now with a custom spec file.
