I'm getting the following in 2.6.18-rc3-mm2 when I complile AFS and NFS
into the kernel. I left FSCACHE as a module somehow, enabled AFS/NFS
caching, and hilarity ensues:

fs/built-in.o(.text+0xbbcd7): In function `nfs_fscache_release_page':
lxc/include/linux/fscache.h:482: undefined reference to

Is there some way that we can tell fscache's Kconfig option that it can
not be a module if any of the filesystems using it *are*? Should we
take away the option for fscache to be a module?
