Sorry to reply to my own post, but it seems like I should perhaps
invert and rephrase my questions: ;)
Has anyone - anyone at all - successfully managed to get openAFS to work
with a linux-vserver kernel?
If noone has managed to make it work, then I may as well consider it a
lost cause and go ahead with NFS... :(
