(e.g.) linux (4.2.0-28.33) introduces:
* vfs: Make sendfile(2) killable even better
- LP: #1536370
which is known to cause issues for openafs.
https://gerrit.openafs.org/#/c/12228/ is believed to be a workaround; you
could try the PPA at https://launchpad.net/~openafs/+archive/ubuntu/stable
to get packages including that change.
