Starting with, IIRC, 2.6.7, those symbols aren't available to drivers
anymore.  I *thought* all the ck drivers were ok on that, but maybe
not.  Downgrade your kernel, or check with Chris to see if he's fixed
that yet.

NOTE: if you're using a real distro, you need to remember to be careful
what kernel upgrades you let be performed automagically.
