FYI, I tested the Lustre 1.8 patch that provides support for 
2.6.18-308.1.1 and while it does successfully compile the resulting 
changes in the kernel severely impact the isci (Intel SAS) driver. 
Romley (new Xeon-E5) systems booting this driver panic during boot, just 
after switchroot. I will capture the trace and post it, it appears to be 
the result of patch changes to jbd.
