I already got THAT part... ;)

This implies that the as-shipped from Redhat fuse package has both
kernel- and userland parts, correct? I'm attempting to show my
ignorance here - is it working? ;)

But the kmdl is kernel-dependent so I have to wait for a new kernel to
appear anyways. I realize that's not true in this specific case (2869
is already released and this is a fix for it) but future revisions from
Redhat *could* make the ATrpms module simply redundant, correct? Or is
it more correct to say that ATrpms would generally bring fixes and
improvements in a faster manner?
Basically, my question is whether there's a guaranteed (more or less)
improvement in some way over using the Redhat files/method? I have to
use your modules for things that Redhat simply doesn't provide but this
appears to be optional from where I stand at the moment.
