but that is only for external kernel modules.
One of the things that bit me the first time I compiled a debian kernel
is that the config file I found in arch/<arch>/defconfig has most of the
modules turned off by default, as opposed to the kernel packages which
have a whole lot of modules.

so if the problem is that 'find /lib/modules/<version> -name \*.o' is
only coming up with a few modules, you might want to check the config.

Just throwing this out there.
