    sounds weird... the filesystem it implements is afs.
    your change also breaks userspace, since the fs type is a mount option
    so your change is userspace visible and means people need to fix their
    scripts...

    maybe openafs should start using "openafs" as type; they're not in the
    kernel so they aren't yet bound by the userspace ABI....
