[BSA-025] Security Update for openafs

Russ Allbery uploaded new packages for openafs which fixed the following
security problems:

CVE-2011-0430 (DSA-2168-1)

  Andrew Deason discovered that a double free in the Rx server process
  could lead to denial of service or the execution of arbitrary code.
  This affects the server components of the openafs package.

CVE-2011-0431 (DSA-2168-1)

  It was discovered that insufficient error handling in the kernel module
  could lead to denial of service.  A local user can induce a kernel panic
  in the OpenAFS client.  This affects the kernel module component of the
  openafs package.

Note that for the fix to CVE-2011-0431, you must rebuild the OpenAFS
kernel module and unload and reload the newly built kernel module after
upgrading openafs-modules-source or openafs-modules-dkms, whichever you

manually via "apt-get -t lenny-backports install <packagelist>" with
the packagelist of your installed packages affected by this update.
