yes and yes - this is only needed in ceph-client-standalone.

fact is, that kernels smaller than 2.6.34 will be standard next years - 
examples :
* Debian 5.0  2.6.26
* Ubuntu 10.04 LTS: 2.6.32
* Debian 6.0 2.6.32
* RHEL/CentOS 6 2.6.32

they all will need backported ceph modules. if there is no version 
output in modinfo it will be hard to say which version is loaded.
