that's the 'problem'.  the -ac kernel series has some changes to the inode
struct.  someone mentioned that they would supply some patches to make this
work.  i believe that they were going to typedef vnode_t into struct inode.
this only solves half the problem since the afs code uses struct vnode
instead of vnode_t half the time.   the afs could should be convered to
use vnode_t exclusively i suppose.  comments anyone?

so switch to a 'standard' 2.4.2 release, or if i have a few hours i suppose
i could try doing the above.
