The coda.o included in the 2.2.6 and later Linux kernels should work
fine. For 2.3 things are still in a flux and don't work right. I've sent
a patch to Al Viro around 2.3.46, but it hasn't shown up so it probably
conflicted with some of the other changes he's been making. Some big vfs
cleanups seem to be happening.
