Forgot to mention this is just the client side code, not the server
side.   The merge commit to bring this into the kernel says:

    staging: add Lustre file system client support

    Lustre is the most deployed distributed file system
    in the HPC (High Performance Computing) world. The patch
    adds its client side support.

    The code is not very clean and needs to live in drivers/staging
    for some time for continuing cleanup work. See
    drivers/staging/lustre/TODO for details.

    The code is based on Lustre master commit faefbfc04
