OpenAFS can't go in extras, the license isn't compatible with the GPL
(and thus the kernel license)

yes extras has SOME security issues. But it's not the same. There is a
difference between having to fix a roothole in 15 different kernels and
building 15 modules, and having to fix it in one, and then potentially
rebuild a few outside modules. Just in build time alone, but also in
complexity and testing.
