[OpenAFS] byte-range lock errors

Hi folks,

Although I upgraded my site's server machine from Debian squeeze to  
wheezy and from openafs-fileserver to 1.6.1 months ago, I  
only upgraded my workstation to wheezy with openafs-client 1.6.1 this  
week. However, since the latter I've been seeing very many of these  
errors in my workstation's syslog:

   afs: byte-range locks only enforced for processes on this machine \
   (pid 4538 (firefox-bin), user 10000).

Is it possible to enable support for byte-range locks in this version  
of OpenAFS, or failing that and since it doesn't seem to affect  
Firefox (Iceweasel) anyway, is it possible to disable these particular  
error messages?
