This afs_syscall is to AFSCALL_CALL, AFSOP_RXLISTENER_DAEMON, which
should be starting the RX Listener.  I'm not sure where the E2BIG error
is coming from.  Did you see anything in your kernel logs, such as
"AFS: RX failed to initialize."?

To openafs-devel: there are a lot of places in the kernel module where
return values are ignored.  I'm wondering if better return-code
checking would help track this particular problem down?
