Oops!  Sorry, that should have been `debian/rules binary-modules' not

[ Who was the genius that decided to name the makefile targets
"binary" and "build?"  I constantly substitute one for the other when
working on my packages. ]

If you use `debian/rules binary-modules' then you will get a deb file
that you can install with dpkg.  It's a little better than simply
copying the files, since you will be using Debian's packaging system
to track these files.

This is clearly the source of the problem.  Somehow the kernel that
you are using was created with a different configuration than the one
in your .config file.  Fortunately, this problem seems to be resolved.
