    systemd: RemainAfterExit in openafs-client.service
    Currently, if the client is started without any options that require
    an extra thread (like -afsdb), all processes spawned by afsd will
    exit. There may be some kernel threads still active, but those are
    spawned by the kernel module, and are not child processes of the
    parent afsd process, or anything like that.
    Since we are a Type=forking service in systemd, systemd interprets
    this situation to mean that the service has stopped successfully, and
    then runs the ExecStop commands. So, for example, if our AFSD_ARGS in
    our sysconfig is "-fakestat -afsdb", the service starts as normal. But
    if it is changed to "-fakestat", then when openafs-client.service is
    started, it immediately stops again.
    To avoid this, turn on the systemd option RemainAfterExit, which tells
    systemd that the service has not stopped if all of our processes have
    exited. The client service will thus remain running until it is
    Issue reported by Rich Sudlow.
