The work to clean up the Lustre client for the upstream kernel continues on
in a separate tree, and is actively being worked on by Neil and James (CC'd).
If you were on the lustre-devel list you'd see a steady stream of patches for
that tree.

I don't have the URL for that Git tree handy, but I'm sure they are happy to get some more testing and usage of their code.
