Kernel module is fine, it looks like we actually will not end up having
a different kernel-API with 2.3 kernels after all. Some important VFS
changes are being introduced in the 2.3 kernels which will make Coda's
life a lot simpler.

Are you testing against your own server? Did you create the root volume
on the server?

/vice/vol/Volumelist and /vice/vol/VRList should have entries for
coda:root. Otherwise check whether the server crashed on startup, or
rerun 'createvol_rep coda:root E0000001 /vicepa'
