...or anything else that has a kernel module and calls

I tried, in vain, to build openafs on Beta1.. it turns out Suse has
patched out the page_cache_alloc_cold function from the kernel.  See
patch file suse/patches.suse/mm-remove-__GFP_COLD.patch (or link

The reasoning and such makes sense, but it's not in mainline yet so
anything out there with kernel modules that you're used to building that
requires this, isn't going to build.
