As you know, the release of OpenAFS 1.6.0 is imminent. Currently we
expect to release OpenAFS with support for Linux kernels
through 2.6.38.
Going forward, it appears that substantial changes would be needed to
support kernels 2.6.39 onwards. To that end, it's our expectation that
for the
continued stability of the 1.4 release series, that kernels beyond
2.6.38 would not be supported, and sites wishing to deploy newer
kernels would
require a 1.6 series release.

If you have concerns on this topic, I'd like to hear from you. (reply
to openafs-gatekeepers or openafs-info as you feel appropriate).
