For 2.6.24 there is no way to use the current release version of
Dazuko. I am working on basic kernel patch that will allow Dazuko to
also be built statically in the kernel.

I thought it would be pretty easy, but some parts of the code will
require large changes. For example, when the kernel is booted, there
is no file system available. This means that Dazuko needs to delay
creating /dev/dazuko. Technically this probably isn't a problem, but I
need to look at other modules to see how to do this correctly.
