I've seen this before, I think the solution is to use:

mipsel-linux-ld -G 0 -r -o temp.o temp.o temp1.o

Without the '-G0' the linker places small common variables into a '.scommon'
section which insmod fails to relocate.

'insmod' should complain in this situation or try to relocate these symbols
