The problem is that the clear_tlb_table symbol is not exported.
I think it should be sufficient to add EXPORT_SYMBOL(clear_tlb_table)
to macos_ksyms.c. Even better, compile the kernel with the module
config option set to no (module support is probably going
to disappear since it is only a relatively small part of the 
code which actually can be put in a module).
