Does this kernel have i_blksize in struct inode?
afs_osi_Stat() has this recent patch to deal with the missing i_blksize:

     astat->blksize = OSIFILE_INODE(afile)->i_blksize;

... so perhaps astat->blksize is never initialized?  The kernel code
itself seems to use "(1 << inode->i_blkbits)" as a replacement for
inode->i_blksize in fs/stat.c
