I have had some problems with XFS on a Debian-based AFS fileserver. XFS
decided to off-line a volume due to a long timeout in the underlying
RAID volume. I would not recomend it without heavy testing.

I'll note that someone mentioned a problem with the 8192 stack size in
Debian a few months ago in the #openafs IRC channel. They worked around
the problem with via changing some setting before starting the AFS
processes. Unfortunately I do not remember the exact solution or the
exact problem, but you are not the only one experiencing it.
