Nobody denies that... ;-)

Please no "me too" comments. This is an upstream issue. If you need to use OpenAFS you currently need to use linux-lts.

I also confirm that I cannot compile on a fresh (of yesterday!) installation of arch.

@DarioP: This is known but I don't think anyone is currently working on this issue:

I cannot compile on Linux 4.5

There are first reports of data corruption when running OpenAFS on Linux 4.4. The proposed patches should therefore only be considered for testing and debugging and not for actual use in production.

Yes, compiled just fine here. I tested it in my university network; seems to be working fine. (Since loss of data might occur in some error handling, I am not sure about that.)

Sorry, forgot to answer here because it was already discussed for the openafs and openafs-modules-dkms packages. So I'm copy&pasting here:

You can test the proposed patches for Linux 4.4.
Download the corresponding branch of my PKGBUILDs from, enter the openafs-modules folder and run makepkg.

Testing these patches (and providing feedback) would be very helpful in the process of getting these patches included, you should be aware of possible unresolved data loss issues:
This is also the main reason why I did not include the patches here, yet.

Same error here...

I get this error when trying to build:

@darkxsun: I can image what could cause this issue, although I never observed it myself and did not verify it:

Imagine an update from linux 4.0 to 4.1. You may have another 3rd party module installed that is lying in extramodules-4.0-arch. Now you install linux 4.1. Consequently extramodules-4.1-arch is the most recent folder, which is what we and the heuristic in this PKGBUILD expect.
Now you update your other 3rd party module. It may (again: this is not verified) first install the new version in extramodules-4.1-arch and then remove its old version in extramodules-4.0-arch. Consequently extramodules-4.0-arch is the folder with the most recent update time, which confuses the heuristic in this PKGBUILD.

Currently I have no idea to handle this. I'm open for suggestions and will keep this problem in mind though. But you always can just change the PKGBUILD to point to the correct folder - or use the -dkms package... ;)
