openafs_1_8: 1.8.5 -> 1.8.6 #84968
Motivation for this change
spacefrogg left a comment
I would like to defer this until the 1.8.6 release or at least split it off such that 1.8.5 is used on compatible kernels and 1.8.6pre* is used only on 5.6 kernels. When deployed, AFS is usually a central piece of infrastructure and pre-releases had issues in the past. So, I wouldn't like to surprise anyone with a breaking minor release update.
It usually works out. It is, though, neither supported nor recommended by upstream. Given the significance of a working AFS, my comment above still applies. I would suggest marking it broken on 5.6 kernels until 1.8.6 is released. It would only disturb client updates and no pure server setups.
I know this is an nuisance and it is successfully haunting distribution maintainers since the first release of OpenAFS. Let's hope for kafs...
