I've never heard of "linux vserver" until today..  A quick google
search and it looks like it does something similar to Xen.  Honestly,
I don't know if anyone has ever tried to make it work.  But I'm
fairly sure that OpenAFS works on a Xen kernel (I don't remember if
it works on the Xen host or Xen guest or both).

"Managed" and "Tried" are two different things.
