Hmm.  I seem to have mislaid this thread.

I recommend using modules rather than to put vinum in the kernel.
Since I test this way, I also prefer you to do it that way, so that I
can't be sure there's some problem in the build process.

On the other hand, Matt is right: it's currently a pain to be sure
your kernel and the vinum module are in sync.  Given the problems
we're having, understand the issues and do whichever you prefer.
