OK, Andres. Last debdiff also isn't good. What you should do is:
1) grab package with grab-merge script.
2) revert the change in drbd/linux/drbd.h file (so that the source is the same as debian's):
      -# define CN_IDX_DRBD			0x6
      +# define CN_IDX_DRBD			0x4
3) use dpatch system to create a patch which will introduce this change in drbd/linux/drbd.h:
      -# define CN_IDX_DRBD			0x4
      +# define CN_IDX_DRBD			0x6

The idea is to have the source package of the drbd8 in Ubuntu in the
same state as in Debian. With use of dpatch we can contain all the
changes to the source inside debian sudirectory.

Second thing that's wrong is that your debiff removes Debian's changes
from changelog. That's wrong. All the changes Debian did in the package
should be presented in Ubuntu.

(speaking as mentor) Consider this merge a bit complicated, but it will
enable you to learn how to use dpatch, if you haven't before. I could
guide you on IRC.
