Yes, 2.6.25 is still a work in progress.  Current CVS works here, but=
 your mileage may vary.

As for F9, I just tried building OpenAFS with a F9 kernel, but this c=
urrently fails because of GPL only symbols that get dragged in by som=
e kernel debugging options (as discussed in another thread):
- lock statistics brings in mutex_lock_nested() which is GPL
- lockdep brings in some rcu GPL symbols

These will probably be disabled once F9 is released, but it means Ope=
nAFS can't currently be built for rawhide, and shows that OpenAFS is =
vulnerable to any distribution choosing to enable one of these option=
s in their releases.
