insmod / add-symbol-file

When I use -O, I still have the same problems.

Without optimization, insmod complains that in_8 and out_8 are unresolved. I
removed the code that needs this, so that it could load. But unfortunately,
the same problem. :-<<

Have you tried to compile with "-O -g" options instead of "-O2 -g"?
I'd guess optimization 'confuses' gdb symbols. Maybe have a try even
without -O,
 as I only know for sure that the kernel needs an optimization step to
get some things
properly setup.
