So, I assume the insmod always works fine, but it panics as soon as
afsd is started?

The more useful part is right above that. If you can't see any more
lines, you can configure the box to dump core on panic, and you (or I,
or whatever) can then get all of the messages in the dumped vmcore.

Anything different in the config on the box? (does the cache dir exist
and look the same?) The only code changes between 1.4.14 and I
think were for Solaris and Linux 2.6.38, so nothing relevant was
_supposed_ to have changed...
