I'd like to participate in the kmod SIG.

I am interested in getting the in-kernel AFS client available to
CentOS systems.  This involves the kafs and rxrpc kernel modules.
These kernel modules are already in-tree.  I'd probably be targeting
9-stream, since it has the most mature version of the kAFS client in

Also, there needs to be a kafs-client non-kernel package, which makes
the /afs mount available using the kernel module.  kafs-client is
already built in Fedora[1] so it's not a stretch to get it working in
CentOS.  The 9-stream filesystem package already supports the /afs

I'm also interested in participating in whatever the SIG decides for
signing kmods.
