    macos: add entry for afs into synthetic.conf
    The root mount point is read-only as of macOS 10.15. As a result, /afs
    cannot be created at this location. To workaround this restriction,
    macOS 10.15 provides an alternative way to create mount points at the
    root. To make it possible, an entry for the mount point in question must
    be added to /etc/synthetic.conf. The synthetic entities described in
    this file are not physically present on the disk. Instead, they are
    synthesized by the kernel during system boot.
    This commit adds an entry for afs into the file mentioned above. Knowing
    that this change only takes effect after reboot, also provide directions
    to the user during the installation process.
