It was disabled because of build failures on various architectures
other than x86_64. There are patches to fix it but Greg has not yet
merged them. The process is that our patches need to reach Linus'
mainline through Greg KH, maintainer of the staging tree.

If you want to give it a try, you can take a look at my development
repo (https://github.com/bergwolf/linux/tree/lustre-latest). It fixes
all the build errors and contains other intermediate patches that I am
playing with (so unstable :-). Enable CONFIG_LUSTRE_FS and compile
kernel then you can have it. Of course, you still need userspace tools
from Intel repo. So I suggest building/installing Lustre from Intel
git master before switching to new kernel. Maybe we should provide a
configure option in master to let users build only userspace tools, or
is there already some?
