The guidelines allow that.  From

"Kernel-module packages must use one of the following licenses: GNU 
General Public License v2.0, GNU Lesser General Public License v2, IBM 
Public License v1.0, Common Public License v0.5, Q Public License v1.0, 
Open Software License v1.1, or any open source license granted by Red Hat.

Note that any kernel module licensed with any license except GPL or LGPL 
will taint the kernel."

The OpenAFS module license is IBM Public license.
