I wouldn't recommend running a 3.1 kernel with OpenAFS 1.6.0.  There's
a bug that will eventually cause your system to hang under load.  It
is fixed in the master branch, and will be part of any upcoming 1.6

I have a few systems with 3.1 and 3.2-rc kernels (but running master,
not 1.6) and this behaves normally for my cells.
