Well, that fixes it.  The driver works out-of-the-box with just some
minor makefile modifications.

So, we've got a problem somewhere in the module handling.  Either the
symbol wasn't being relocated properly, or it wasn't being allocated
properly, or something.  I'm not an expert in this region of the
kernel, but my guess is that we're going to see this more and more
often, so someone with a clue should take a look at this.

I'm more than willing to help, as I seem to be the only person with a
100% reproducable situation.  But I really have no idea even where to
begin looking... my expertise ends right about at objdump, and even
then I'm not certain how some of that data should look for loadable
