The container files on your machine in /usr/coda/venus.cache. The `size'
of this cache was specified as the last argument of
 `venus-init <servers> <cachesize>'

Depends, the kernel module is counting howmany references there are,
normally there is one for venus opening /dev/cfs0 and another one for
the /coda mountpoint.

What kernel version are you running?
Is coda compiled as a kernel-module or built into the kernel?
i.e. I can't tell if you _have_ to reboot, ofcourse that should always work.
