[OpenAFS] Openafs-client module fails (debian-sarge)

Using regen.sh is the only way I can get compiles reliably across several
machines. Specifically the libafs module is where compiles are breaking.

I have no idea why but it works on SUSE 9.3.

If he uses openafs-modules-source from sarge and has a 2.4.27 kernel as he
says, that module name will be called openafs.o, not libafs.ko.

Shouldn't be required with openafs-modules-source.  I'm guessing the problem
will go away by installing the right version of that package and then using
make-kpkg as normal.
