According to the kernel documentation, /dev/ida/ holds device entries for
a Compaq harware raid array. I've never heard of it before and it doesn't
seem to be related to your problem (except if you're using an extremely
cool hardware configuration for a Mac LC :)

Most likely: mismatch between modules and/or System.map and kernel.

Do those messages appear during bootup as well?

Is the kernel you've booted really the one you think you have?
"uname -a" will tell you.

Where did you get the kernel, modules, System.map from? They should, as
a rule of thumb, all be compiled in one go (and hence you cannot generally
mix kernel/modules from differrent sources).

Where did you put the System.map file? Usually, it goes to
/boot/System.map-<kernelversion> and /boot/System.map is a symbolic link
to the former.

I'll explain in more detail.]
