[OpenAFS] ioctl on afs_ioctl blocking forever

I think my problems had more to do with the vldb getting confused about 
internal vs external addresses. The clients would figure it out 
eventually, but I found that the vpn actually made things quite a lot 
faster (until this ioctl issue, which has me completely baffled), I 
think because the clients didn't have to look around for an IP they 
could actually talk to. That could have been some misconfiguration, but 
like I said, I'll utilize the vpn for other reasons as well.
