I just got a random call yesterday asking about AFS on ppc64, and I
don't think I've seen the issue(s) described anywhere...

I remember hearing people complain OpenAFS didn't work on ppc64. One
issue was the code trying to insert a function pointer into the syscall
table at runtime, which doesn't work because it ends up inserting a
pointer to the ppc64 function descriptor.

Are there other issues? Has anyone seriously tried to make it work?
