I'm asking mainly because I'm packaging this for gentoo, and putting a
disk cache on /var/cache/openafs is the default.  Wouldn't want to fry
other people's rootfs en mass :)

I did after I started loosing my libraries.  I've read that you
shouldn't run fsck on a /vicepx, but I guess this was only for the
namei-fileserver (right?, as opposed to the inode-one where I suppose
you can run fsck) and also not for the cache?  Is there any up-to-date
documentation on this?
