So modpost claim it cannot find the symbols.

I did not look closer.
But it looks like the linker failed to resolve these symbols
in the final link somehow - despite the symbols are present in
the linked in .o file.
Can you try to drop me the output of the relocation records for the
finally linked .o file (the one with your .o file linked in).
objdump -r IIRC
