>patch #108528-04, I find that openafs (even I tried 1.0.1) no longer

after installing 108528-04 on my local solaris8 box, i am not seeing
any problems with openafs 1.0.1.

bashir.2% uname -a
SunOS bashir 5.8 Generic_108528-04 sun4u sparc SUNW,Ultra-5_10
bashir.3% cksum /afs/cmf/users/chas/fstuning.txt

try appending the following to /etc/system and rebooting.

set lwp_default_stksize=0x4000

since afs 3.6 some of our solaris boxes have been overflowing
the stack of the kernel threads.  i usually just add this 
out of habit anymore just to prevent any trouble.  the real
fix is too change the default stack size unsed when creating
the threads in src/lwp/.
