This is great!

Will start working with this new version as soon as possible.

At this point I have a few questions:

the lustre server kernel is based on


surely this means that the clients should be on the same version of the 
kernel (i.e., 3.1, but the standard one)?

And if I want to use a later kernel I have to build it from source 
(something I have done on one of the release candidates, but didn't have 
time to test)?

Would it actually be recommended to build lustre on a newer kernel (if 
you don't have any general issues with this older kernel)?

Regards, and thanks again
