OK, now I have gotten some responses from HP support:

Next answer, to the question where I might find the structs defined in these

These two answers together makes me feel rather sh*t out of luck of ever
getting OpenAFS to work on 11.31 (ia64). It's probably doable, but my
programming knowledge (especially kernel modules) doesn't reach the level
that i need to get this to work.
Is there someone out there that can help me? I *might* be able to provide a
system to try out the compilation on.
