The only one I knew of was the same as the one Chas mentions: ufs logging.
(Same for Solaris 7) 

Since Chas contributed the Solaris 8 port, and he knows of no other
reason, I will arrange for 1.0.4 to have a vfsck on Solaris 8. 

Hartmut Reuter also contributed patches making it possible to build and
use the namei fileserver on Solaris 8 by just defining 
#define AFS_NAMEI_ENV     1   /* User space interface to file system */

in src/config/param.sun4x_58.h before building, if you wish to go that
route. Incidentally, I have done no verification with the fileserver
from Solaris 8.
