Your kernel module should be fine. The 2 errors at the end are perfectly
normal. Venus is trying to clear kernel state before the module is
completely set up and the creation of the /coda inode fails with ENXIO.

This is consistent with the fact that venus is unable to find the
rootvolume. It is definitely not a kernel problem.
