Just to make sure we all talk about the same things, there was an issue
with relocation of kernel modules some time ago when we moved to a
newer version of egcs, which needed a newer version of modutils to be
able to handle that new relocation.

The modutils version to use is 2.1.121. If nowhere else, you can find a
binary on my site (see below).

Now, I may be completely off track, and this problem now is something
completely different ;-)
