This is the standard mismatch problem between the kernel and the OpenAFS
build.  So, the standard questions:  What compiler are you using?  Are you
using a stock Debian kernel, or did you build the kernel yourself?  Are
you using module-assistant or something like it to do the build, or
building by hand?
