Native AFS client kernel implementation. kafs.
Will need to know if this is possible for RHEL4 U1 by Nov 10th.
This is desired by many customers.
PM ACK for U2.
Created attachment 123788 [details]
wrapper function to allow kernel-2-kernel forcing session keyring
Exporting the symbols necessary to allow AFS to do the job was nixed, so the
following wrapper function is needed to allow the existing AFS stuff to be
adequate for customer.
Can we get a development update on this? Not sure if this is really going into U3.
This issue is on Red Hat Engineering's list of planned work items
for the upcoming Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4.4 release. Engineering
resources have been assigned and barring unforeseen circumstances, Red
Hat intends to include this item in the 4.4 release.
QE ack for 4.5.
Devel NAK as a R4.5 beta blocker. kAFS support is not ready to be submitted for
R4.5. Moving request out to R4.6.
At this late stage in RHEL4 development I do not see us delivering on a backport
of native client support in RHEL 4. Devel NAK for RHEL4.
Development Management has reviewed and declined this request. You may appeal
this decision by reopening this request.
We don't have plans to support KAFS at this point.
