[DRBD-user] DRBD requires a Xen kernel?

This is probably a FAQ, but I just installed a DRBD package, and it
installed a Xen kernel for/to me. This seems a bit unnecessary, and
arguably unfriendly...

What did I miss?

Here's the RPM info:
$ rpm -q -i drbd
Name : drbd Relocations: (not relocatable)
Version : 8.3.6 Vendor: (none)
Release : 1.el5 Build Date: Tue 08 Dec 2009
08:43:15 AM GMT
Install Date: Tue 30 Mar 2010 05:07:29 AM GMT Build Host: localhost
Group : System Environment/Kernel Source RPM:
Size : 45901 License: GPLv2+
Signature : (none)
URL : http://www.drbd.org/
Summary : DRBD driver for Linux
Description :
DRBD mirrors a block device over the network to another machine.
Think of it as networked raid 1. It is a building block for
setting up high availability (HA) clusters.

This is a virtual package, installing the full DRBD userland suite.
