What better opportunity to test the new release, than when the DKMS of 
the old release from jessie (1.6.9-2+deb8u6) AND from jessie-backports 
(1.6.18.2-1~bpo8+1) fails to build on the new kernel with the 
"Meltdown"-fixes (which for Debian-Jessie is 3.16.0-5-amd64)...

I created packages in a way similar to what I wrote in 
https://lists.openafs.org/pipermail/openafs-info/2016-December/041997.html 
only that I did it all on a Debian Jessie system, instead of Ubuntu 14.04.

So far everything works fine, the DKMS-module was built successfully and 
the AFS-client seems completely usable.

Greetings,
Gaja Peters

P.S. In case anybody can (or wants to) make use of these packages, I 
copied them to the AFS in the publicly accessible directory
/afs/math.uni-hamburg.de/public/fmsv030/openafs-1.8.0~pre4-1_amd64_Debian-Jessie
