Many people are running afs and containers in production.  You need to
run afsd in the global zone.  Use lofs mounts to import all or part of
the afs namespace into the child zones.  Importing all of /afs into a
zone just requires the following zonecfg stanza:

add fs
set type=lofs
set dir=/afs
set special=/afs

Use set options as you like.
