I have only ever used the kernel-pkg script make-kpkg to build kernels
since I started using Debian. Recently, I noticed a similar message as
well when using ps:

{kernel_scsi_ioctl} {__VERSIONED_SYMBOL(kernel_scsi_ioctl)}
Warning: /boot/System.map-2.4.0-test12 does not match kernel data.

Normally, make-kpkg takes care of all this, but in this case I think the
version of kernel-package that I have (woody version) might have a
bug as the System.map file mentioned above does exist:

-rw-r--r--   1 root  root  420125 Dec 20 20:25 /boot/System.map-2.4.0-test12
