This morning Gentoo distributed a shiny new kernel-3.2.0, so of course I 
had to build it. Next I had to rebuild all of the out-of-tree kernel 
modules, including openafs-1.6.0. It failed, relevant lines:
CC [M] 
In function ‘vattr2inode’:
error: assignment of read-only member ‘i_nlink’
make[6]: *** 
Error 1
make[5]: *** 
Error 2
make[5]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/linux-3.2.0-gentoo'
I presume that someone already knows about this, but I haven't seen it 
mentioned here or on openafs-devel. I also presume that it's something 
that has changed in kernel-3.2.0, etc, etc, etc.
