This is the 0.2 release of Linux kernel Cluster Framework.

What is LKCF:
-----------
LKCF's aim is to provide a transport independent cluster communication
framework within the kernel. This enables the developers to write
kernel based cluster services without being worried about
communication transport. It also support RPC style programming. That
means to write kernel service one need to write the service definition
file (<service>.svc>) and the implementation API. LKCF framework will
generate all the  registration routines and the marshaling code. Also
it takes care of forwarding the SIGNALs across different nodes.The
particular service can be called from any node specifying the node at
which this particular service need to be executed. All the underlying
management interface is taken care by the LKCF.
