I've got two .backup volumes that are busy and cannot
seem to find a way to get them unstuck.

# vos ex 1953054615
**** Volume 1953054615 is busy ****

# bos --version
openafs 1.4.14

 From the VolserLog:

Fri Apr 19 15:02:36 2013 trans 22 on volume 1953054615 is older than 469110 seconds

We've been just restarting the server.  Is there a better way to kill
these hung transactions without a sledge hammer?
