Add a `yum install kmod-drbd83` (or kmod-drbd83-xen) that will normally 
instead fetch drbd83 as a required dep .. and that will update the 
current drbd82 that you have on your system.
Of course you know that such update will *stop* your drbd node, right ? 
(as the kmod will be updated and drbd will see a diff between kmod and 
userland tools and so will stop itself) . Of course you'll be able to 
start it up just after the update
