Dear users of the mailing list,

I've got compilation errors for the recent version of DRBD v9 on my Tinkerboard:
make[1]: Entering directory '/usr/src/drbd/drbd'

   Calling toplevel makefile of kernel source tree, which I believe is in

make -C /lib/modules/5.10.6-rockchip/build   M=/usr/src/drbd/drbd  modules

The architecture of the Tinkerboard is "armv7l" which is 32 bit. The
error lines with "modpost" indicate that in the source code of DRBD
uses some 64 bit division that the used Linux kernel does not
support.I also tried the compilation on my Odroid C2 having a 64
architecure with success. I also tried other Linux kernel version,
e.g. 4.x, 5.2.x and 5.8.x.

I hope someone is able to help me,
