I have learned a little. It is defined in the kernel headers and it is not
meant to be resolved but to force an error. Actually, the error is twice,
once in link phase again with modprobe. The first error scrolled off
screen before. But because this is reported at link time, there is no
file name and line number so its very hard to see what the problem
