    Redhat: correct path to kernel module in dkms.config
    This fix corrects some annoying error and warning messages during
    dkms install or uninstall.
    DKMS: build completed.

    Commit 1c96127e37c0ec41c7a30ea3e4aa68f3cc8a24f6 standardized the
    location where the openafs.ko module is installed (from
    /kernel/3rdparty to /extra/).  The RPM Spec file was not updated to
    build the dkms.conf file with the corrected location.
    From the documentation for dkms
     DEST_MODULE_LOCATION is ignored on Fedora Core 6 and higher, Red Hat
     Enterprise Linux 5 and higher, Novell SuSE Linux Enterprise Server 10
     and higher, Novell SuSE Linux 10.0 and higher, and Ubuntu.  Instead,
     the proper distribution-specific directory is used.
    However the DEST_MODULE_LOCATION is still used saving and restoring old
    copies of the module.
    The NO_WEAK_MODULES parameter prevents dkms from creating a symlink into
    weak-updates directory, which can lead to broken symlinks when
    dkms-openafs is removed.  The weak modules facility was designed to
    eliminate the need to rebuild kernel modules when kernel upgrades occur
    and relies on the symbols within the kABI.  Openafs uses symbols that
    are outside the kABI, and therefor is not a candidate for a weak module.
