I upgraded a customer from 5.4.1 cluster two nodes and DRBD (stock opensource drbd not Linbit subscription)

In September i did a test installation with 3 VM and proxmox 5.4 to 6.0) and all well done

Now i upgraded production system (i had to wait ok from customer damn it ...) and with kernel 5.3.13
alway get error
drbdsetup-84 new resource .... exit 20

i googoled an d i discover that there is a bug in kernel after 5.1.X
i installed from /var/cache/apt .... of test VM kernel 5.0.21-5 and i fix it

But now i'm stuck on this version and i cannot do next upgrades
i think that this it shoult fixed

Maybe you can contact Linbit to backport this patch to Debian 10.

Just follow the Linbit docs (and support), I am not aware of any "complete incompatibility" here.
