[OpenAFS] Solaris 10/SMF

I've been doing the pseudo afs client in zones for a while with the IBM 
client.. it works pretty well. Everything looks and feels like a normal afs 
client as long as you not only do lofs for /afs, but for /usr/vice as well (req 
for the config files in /usr/vice/etc - allows klog/vos/fs/... to work right)

This is what I add to the config for afs support:
add fs
set dir=/afs
set special=/afs
set type=lofs
add fs
set dir=/usr/vice
set special=/usr/vice
set type=lofs

SMF manifests instead of legacy scripts would be great - they'd just need to 
be configured to not try and restart. Looking forward to trying them out!
