I use arla, and it works ok (but, of course, my own compiled version, 
not debian package).
I tried to switch to openafs, but it is much more kernel-dependent than
arla, make a HUGE kernel modules, and I was able to set it up only after
whole day fight (and it OOPSed when umounting fs), whereas setting up
arla was a piece of cake.

Arla package just needs a new maintainer (no, I do not volunteer, 
I would not find enough time for it :-))
