[OpenAFS] Linux kernel modules - symlinks instead of rebuilds?

How awful a practice is it to use symlinks to kernel
modules when a matching libafs is not found for the
*exact* kernel?

That is, for instance:

libafs-2.6.18-128.1.6.el5.mp.ko -> libafs-2.6.18-92.el5.mp.ko
libafs-2.6.18-164.11.1.el5.mp.ko -> libafs-2.6.18-92.el5.mp.ko

It "works", but that doesn't mean anything.
