I am more than surprised to read this advice for the AFS client cache.
If you look at one of the recent threads on the openafs-devel mailinglist
I see a very clear advice for using ext2 ONLY.

Could someone please give a _definitive_ answer to this question for
OpenAFS-1.2.3 and 1.2.4.

Many thanks,
