It accepts all of the options that afsd does, and should behave in the
same way. Give it a mountdir and a cachedir and it'll "mount" AFS in
that dir and use the given cache directory.

What should work is unauthenticated file access to AFS; everything else
does not. So, you can't get authenticated access (unless you use host
ACLs; but please don't use host ACLs), and you can't use any utilities
like 'fs' with it.

In developers terms, there's no pioctl, but anything that doesn't
require a pioctl should work. We just haven't created a way to specify
"which cache manager do I communicate with?", so a pioctl call wouldn't
know who to talk to.
