    afs: Log abnormally large chunk files
    Any chunk in our cache for a regular file should be smaller than or
    equal to our configured chunksize. If someone sets a chunk to be
    larger than that, it is very strange and may cause other confusing
    issues. Specifically, afs_DoPartialWrite determines if our cache is
    "too full" by counting the number of dirty chunks. If we have a dirty
    chunk that is much larger than the chunksize, it can throw off the
    afs_DoPartialWrite calculation.
    This is only true for dcaches backing regular files, though. For
    directories, we fetch the entire directory into a single chunk file,
    and the size of a directory blob can easily exceed the chunksize
    without issues. The aforementioned issue with afs_DoPartialWrite does
    not apply, since directory chunks cannot be dirty (we only locally
    modify the chunk if we modify the dir on the server, and the DVs
    Anyway, it should not be possible to get a chunk for a regular file
    larger than the chunksize. Log a message if it does occur, to help
    assist anyone in tracking down issues when this does occur.
    [ remove unnecessary casts in afs_warn args.]
