Yes, there is, iirc. Because we shipped drbd80, drbd82 and drbd83. The
drbd package up there is not from extreas.

I have no idea if their packaging is kernel agnostic, so that it
survives the installation of a new kernel version without rebuilding
or recompiling the kernel module.

There are packages for RHEL, which fall out of the SuSE build service,
afaik. I've looked at their spec file, but find ours better suited to
CentOS.
