I'm fairly sure this is a Solaris bug.  The error indicates that
/dev/udp is an unknown device.  OpenAFS used to panic when this
condition was reached.  The versions you are using will continue
to operate and simply fail to update the current interface list.

However, the root cause of the problem is outside of OpenAFS.  You
should contact Oracle for a fix.
