[DRBD-user] Upgrade PVE 4.4 to 5.1 DRB9

In fact, what I did before was installed drbd-dkms and then I installed the
kernel headers.
So to rectify, I just did a removal of drbd-dkms and re-install it.  So the
proper way is to install the kernel-headers first then the drbd-dms

A search in the proxmox kernel packages, I found that there is the meta
package pve-headers but it uses the kernel pve-headers-4.10.5-1-pve.

My actual kernel is on 4.13.13-6-pve.  So the meta package did not work.  I
need to install the proper kernel version apt-get install
pve-headers-`uname -r`

Whenever there is a new kernel provided by pve, I think they provide their
respective kernel headers.

I will watch this and whenever there is a kernel updates it should be
working from my point of view since it will also update its respective
kernel headers.
