The kernel module is standalone from a compilation standpoint
and does not depend on any libraries.
>From an execution standpoint, it is not standalone.
There is a user-space client application that is needed as a
transport for the VFS requests which in turn depends on the PVFS2
We have spent some time getting 64 bit kmods to work with 32 bit
userspace. So hopefully that should not be a problem.
If you do encounter any issues, please do let us know.
