[OpenAFS] Retiring the LWP fileserver

We're currently maintaining 3 versions of the AFS fileserver - the LWP =
one, a "normal" pthreaded fileserver, and the demand attach fileserver. =
The "normal" pthreaded fileserver has been the default for all of our =
supported platforms since the 1.4 release.

I'd like to simplify the build tree, and the fileserver code, by =
removing support for the LWP fileserver. We have a long term goal of =
removing LWP from the tree entirely, so this is one step along the way. =
If I do so, this change would only target master - the LWP fileserver =
would remain on the 1.6 tree.

Is there anyone out there deliberately making use of the LWP fileserver =
who would be affected by its removal from master?
