Do you have the nls_? module in question it is trying to load?  Have
you tried modprobing it?

Since this is an upgrade, it seems unlikely to be a boot-floppies
problem.  But there are bugs in 2.2.16 where /lib/modules points to
/target/lib/modules and the latter points to itself, hence, no modules
found.  If you experience this, just rm the bad symlink and move
/target/lib/modules.old to /target/lib/modules .
