My problem is that i'm trying to build kernels in 'debian way', so i
have a single .deb package with kernel, some patches, additional modules
and so on. But coda module requires additional work in this case and it
comes to be a problem whan you have several dozens of servers:) So
providing a kernel patch for coda module will make a life easier .
