No.  It's not a question of CALLING the module, it's trying to unload
the module..  The afs startup script shouldn't cause an oops, unless
the module was previously loaded.  Similarly, the module should not
oops if you shutdown AFS and then unload the module.  What WILL oops

        insmod libafs.o
        rmmod libafs.o
