direct links of old sources may well be a few messages off.

Yes, the transports, in this case drbd_transport_tcp have their own
MODULE_VERSION(); So far this was more or less an internal version, but
I can see how this confuses dkms. Hm, maybe we have to bump that as well
every release... Or keep it aligned to the main module's version.
Something like that.

Thanks for (re)raising that.
