openafs-modules-source only builds one module, not two, and it doesn't put
.mp in the name.  You have a stray module left over from something else.

I would start by removing all openafs kernel module packages that you have
installed and then redoing the make-kpkg step, making sure that you're
building the module against the exact same source tree that was used to
build the kernel.  (If you're using the Debian pre-built kernels, you need
to install the appropriate kernel-tree package to get the source tree.)
