@Bevan: I sent you a pull request.

Bevan commented on 2017-02-27 08:22

@kgizdov: There is a patch available to fix that ( I will apply it here soon but cannot test it because I don't use [testing].

@totsilence: Already done but until now I did not push it to the AUR because I could not finish my own testing. If you want to test it, you can find the upcoming version of the package here:

I guess I will finish my testing today evening and if successfull I will push the package to AUR.

@Bevan: Could you please backport this patch?

I confirm that the modules do not build with Linux 4.5. It seems like no one is working on the patch yet:

@greenmanspirit: Yes, they have all been merged by now:
I included them here shortly after they got merged into the development (master) branch.

It looks like Linux 4.5 will cause problems again and I don't see anyone working on patches for that yet, so we will likely be in the same situation again soon. I tend to recommend users who depend on OpenAFS using linux-lts…

@Bevan: Have all of the needed patches been approved by the openafs devs? Thanks!

@Bevan: Thank you for the link! Still, I think I will just wait. I don't want my data to get corrupted.

Bevan commented on 2016-03-15 19:35

@cptiglo: Actually yes. Another path was proposed that should solve the data corruption issues that have been observed. I incorporated that patch into my testing git branch, so you can test is:

Unfortunately, one of the patches is still completely without review by other developers, so I'm waiting for some feedback before I include the patches here in the AUR.
