thanks to a 1-line patch provided by Derrick J Brashear, OAFS now works
also on SMP RedHat stock kernels. Derrick says that it is a matter of days
before the corrected code will be available on openafs.org web site.
In the meanwhile, you may check this binary build (which works on RedHat
7.1 with 2.4.2-2 and 2.4.3-12 stock kernels, UP/SMP, i386/i586):
rpm -qip /afs/caspur.it/project/openafs/afsclient-CASPUR-open71d.i386.rpm
(this query will also display the patch code itself).
