It could be that you have to run 'depmod -a' after installing the
linux-coda kernel module. Although it looks like that was only missing
from the linux2.6 Makefile fragment.

In any case, I've tested the changes and they seem to work. The only
thing right now is the signal handling changes. I'm not sure how to
tell the difference during the build because it is a backported change
so I don't think I can compare against the kernel version number.
