wheezy update of openafs

Hi all,

As recorded in #886799 (and the merged bugs), the recent linux
kernel updates including meltdown remediation also included a kernel
ABI change that breaks the openafs DKMS module (and non-DKMS module,
for what it's worth).  The fix for openafs is pretty simple; just
cherry-pick a couple of upstream patches, but it's not entirely
clear that this update should be considered a "security issue", and
thus I am unclear on what process at
https://wiki.debian.org/LTS/Development really applies.
Should I just find a DD to sponsor the upload to wheezy-security and
get the new package available, or is there some additional (review?)
step as there would for a non-LTS security update or SRU?
