[OpenAFS] In the RPM spec file, what is the goal of the special fedora option?

I've been building RPMS for openafs versions for years and have always
just used the default approach that creates openafs-kernel rpm.

Now I notice in the 1.4.6 spec file an option for fedora, but I can't
quite understand what benefit there is in this approach.  The only
thing I can tell for sure is it builds the kernel module into a
package called kmod-openafs.  I don't understand what the benefit of
that change is.

Can you fill me in?
