BusyBox0.60.x's insmod does not work with gcc-3.3 and above.

I use a patched version of the real insmod:

# insmod --version
insmod version 2.4.25

I forget where I put the patch, but the insmod author told me that the
patches were in a later version.  So if I were you, I would use version
2.4.26 or higher.
