I don't think there's a simple chart or table of this that anyone's put
together, but you can look in the release notes for this information,
e.g. <http://openafs.org/dl/openafs/1.6.1/RELNOTES-1.6.1>.

1.6.1 supported up through Linux 3.4, 1.6.2 supported 3.7, 1.6.4
supported 3.10, and 1.6.6 supported 3.13 (and I think everything beyond
3.13 that's been released as of now). Of course, in any Debian or other
packaging there may be patches that add some more kernel support, but
the vanilla versions can be a helpful guideline.
