Personally, I choose to use 'apt-mark hold' to prevent new kernels from
installing automatically. I prefer to have control when to install a new
kernel for such reason.
Someone mentioned that there's a 'pveupgrade' command which shows more
information during 'apt dist-upgrade', but I have never tried it.

If Proxmox was shipping DRBD9 in their kernel (instead of DRBD8), as they
were doing initially, then DKMS wouldn't be needed at all, but well, that's
their decision ...
