What is the problem with these modules? Give a better description on what you
mean with "working"? They work perfectly for me with a self-compiled 2.2.1
kernel, and I compiled working modules with multiple kernel versions since the
egcs-1.1 alpha phase.
If your only problem is the "unhandled relocation type", install a newer
modutils package (>=2.1.121), that will fix it.
