Modern-xiafs Updated for 4.9.6, 4.10.1

| Comments

Once again, the modern-xiafs kernel module has been updated, this time to cover kernels 4.9.6 and 4.10.1. (Strictly speaking it was updated a few weeks or so ago, but only now am I getting around to noting that fact.) These kernels each have separate branches (linux-4.9.6 and linux-4.10.1, respectively) that need to be used to build the right module for that kernel. As usual, even if your current kernel doesn’t exactly match one of the kernels modern-xiafs has been built against, a branch that’s close to it may work.

The usual warnings, as always: you’d be crazy to use this on a production box, and while it should work fine it could conceivably blow your computer up or something. Don’t forget the whole 2GB volume/64MB max file size limitation either.
