There are a few changes in the ac kernels (and in the Red Hat 2.4.2-2)
which make changes which break OpenAFS since openafs includes a
duplicate of the inode struct.  Patches to get it working are in my
current package (which does differ somewhat from the stock packages due
to some of the stuff related to the environment here at NCSU) at
I do have a report from someone that it doesn't work on SMP though, but
I haven't had a chance to look into that yet.
