The loas+found directory is part of the Linux extN filesystem semantics,
and yes, it would be a terribly idea to try to remove it - it is
automatically there at the top level of a disk mount point.  

Because it being there will mess up kafka. it is a good idea to create a
subdirectory there that the kafka process can write to and use that as
the data dir.  For example, disk is mounted on /mnt (so there is a
/mnt/lost+found), create /mnt/kafka and put the data in there (there
will not be a lost+found under /mnt/kafka).
