There have been two releases of 2174 now (nptl_37 and nptl_38, IIRC). 
To attempt to sum up what Axel has said, usually, he'll keep around 
kernel modules for older kernels for a little while, but in this case, 
the move from 2166 to 2174 was to patch the mremap vulnerability in all 
prior kernels. Since the prior kernels were unsafe (okay, not a huge 
deal for a Myth box, but ATrpms is used for more than just Myth... ;-), 
they were 86'd.

Long story short, JAC is right, you'll have to upgrade your kernel and 
all kernel modules.
