Re: pwc-source headed for unstable this weekend
(I assume everybody is on -devel, like I am, and as it seems the problem
sits between keyboard and chair, no bug report either).
This might very well be, as I didn't compile the kernel myself (I just
use the standard kernel-image-2.6.10-1-k7 package) but used
kernel-source-2.6.10 with the .config from the image package, make
oldconfig and make dep (which I was told is deprecated, so).
So, basically, your saying that the right way to do this kind of things
is to use the corresponding kernel-headers package, and apt-get tells me
that I need as well kernel-kbuild to build "out-of-tree kernel modules"
which seems to be exactly what I need.

i'm guessing that this has to do with how you compiled the module.
IME, this message is typically seen when one complies a module against
a 2.6 kernel tree where 'make clean' has been run since the latest
The kernel-headers-2.6.*-foo packages should ship enough intermediate
files in /usr/src/kernel-headers/* to prevent this problem, but one
easily gets in trouble  if one compiles custom kernels without
being aware of the problem.
 Well, such as it is. As long as one does not get oneself in more
trouble by trying to use the module against a different kernel
build, the warning message at load time seems to be all that
