  Has any tested openafs on sun4x_56 or sun5x_57?

  > sun4x_56 <

After the readdir patch, an OpenAFS-1.0.2 client  is not hanging any more
in 'ls' for a big AFS directory on this machine type :
	SunOS 5.6 Generic_105181-23 sun4m sparc SUNW,SPARCstation-5

  > sun4x_58 <

This type of OpenAFS-1.0.2 VL + file server previously was hanging with 'ls'
in a big AFS directory:
	SunOS 5.8 Generic_108528-04 sun4m sparc SUNW,SPARCstation-20
, allocating all swap space (took some time). Finally returned something
like 'resource not available'.
The server part did already function well.

After a crash, its /vicepa did not mount. So I compiled the vfsck for 
sun4x_58  which did recover it well.

Another compilation with your readdir patch applied just finished. Now doing an 
'ls /afs' , I can see 160+ entries on above machine. Fine.

So, sun4x_57 presumably is no problem any more.

Thanks a lot to you for finding out the reason!
