I've got a need to run a 2.6.37 or later kernel on client machines in order to properly support AMD Interlagos CPUs. My other option is to switch from RHEL 5.x to RHEL 6.x and use the whamcloud 1.8.6-wc1 patchless client (the latest RHEL 6 kernel also supports Interlagos). But I would first like to investigate using a 2.6.37 or later kernel on RHEL 5.

I have a running kernel and started down the path of building Lustre against and ran into the changes that have been made wrt to ioctl(), proc structures, etc.  I am *not* a kernel programmer would rather not mess around too much in the source. 

So I am asking if anyone has successfully patched up Lustre to get a client working with or later.
