OpenAFS could probably adapt by changing h, netinet, and sys under
MODLOAD-* from symlinks to .../include/linux to directories containing
forwarding headers; I'm not sure which specific headers would need
such treatment, but I suspect there are quite a few.
Please let me know if you'd like any other information.
