Actually, 2.6.0-test5 and newer kernels default have the newer 6.x code.
There is a CODA_FS_OLD_API config option that reverts back to the old

Only clients are affected, in fact 5.3.20 and 6.0.0 servers are pretty
close to identical because I didn't want to break everything at the
same time and the client-server protocol didn't need any changes.
