[OpenAFS] Registering a new OpenAFS SYS_NAME_ID

Does OpenAFS not adhere strictly to that list at Grand Central, or is that list 
in need of updating to reflect newer registrations?  Or am I missing something 
else entirely?

I'm asking because OpenAFS on my two workstations reports "amd64_linux26" and 
"i386_linux26" -- no *_linux26 entries are listed at all.  IIRC the *_linux26 
scheme has been the default in Linux 2.6 builds for quite a while.  And while I 
don't have a box with OpenAFS on Solaris in front of me, I think Solaris 10 on 
Sparc defaults to sun4x_510.

Just curious.
