I work at a university.  They don't provide enough money for test
environments :).  Just kinda odd, last time kernel update, gfs updated
at the same time so all was well.  But twice now kernel has upgraded
with no GFS so it went bye-bye.  Is the GFS being installed, compiled
against particular kernel headers, or could I just copy the /fs/gfs
and /fs/gfs_locking to the new kernel /lib/modules (or symlink for that
matter) and be lucky enough it would work?
