The problem is more that there isn't a particularly good alternative that
doesn't involve patching the kernel.  If you have an alternative that
doesn't involve patching the kernel, or alternately have a patch that will
be accepted into the kernel, please speak up!  Contact
openafs-devel@openafs.org if you can help with this.  Some other people
are already working on finding a better approach for Linux 2.6 (possibly
relying on the Linux security module infrastructure).
