Another hint to the novice:  the kernel sources not only have to
be configured, but built as well!  Anyway, I did so and get
this in my build of the clustering software:

  CC [M]  /home/bkorb/RHCluster/build-cluster/gfs-kernel/src/gfs/quota.o

I can unwind the issue farther than the source below, but
if there is already a known issue & resolution, then I'd avoid
the bother:

static int
print_quota_message(struct gfs_sbd *sdp, struct gfs_quota_data *qd, char *type)
	struct tty_struct *tty;
	char *line;
	int len;

	line = kmalloc(256, GFP_KERNEL);
	if (!line)

	len = snprintf(line, 256, "GFS: fsid=%s: quota %s for %s %u\r\n",
		       sdp->sd_fsname, type,
		       (test_bit(QDF_USER, &qd->qd_flags)) ? "user" : "group",

	if (current->signal) {
		tty = current->signal->tty;
		if (tty && tty->driver->write)
			tty->driver->write(tty, line, len);  <<--------- line at issue
//  Of course, the usage of "len" is bogus, too.  You have not verified
//  that "len" is less than 256.  If you a priori know it is less than
//  256, then you could as well use "sprintf" instead.
