It should be quite easy to get it running, it (lwp) has been used in Arla 
( for Linux/alpha, NetBSD/Alpha
and osf/alpha. You should be able to just snatch the diffs. We got linux
support in arla-0.7.

Beware diffrences in iomgr.

Some posted some success with linux/alpha with coda. Don't know what happend.
