I just upgraded my peering server to a 2.4 kernel. It appears to work
fine with CNFS directly on block devices. No more rawfs module needed.

I just compiled the latest 2.4 from CVS on Linux with large files
support and well, it compiles without errors. If the 2.4 kernel
proves to be stable on this box the next few days I'm going to try
to install the LFS-enabled INN because my history file is getting
dangerously close to 2 GB.
