Well, that interface did not exist prior to Solaris 10, and AFS is quite a 
bit older than that.  We're not using it because so far, nothing has broken 
which has caused us to take notice of its existence.  Now that we know 
about it, we can use it, though of course only on AFS_SUN510_ENV.

Further discussion of the details of this work belongs on openafs-devel.
