I'm not 100% sure about what you're seeing, but the module interface in
the 2.5 tree is in a state of major flux right now.  You are really
going to have a tough time getting the kernel running even if you do
manage to get it compiled (BTW, does the behavior change if you build
IDE disk support statically into the kernel, instead of as a module?).

See http://kt.zork.net/kernel-traffic/latest.html#5 for some info about
the problems people are experiencing with the 2.5 tree modules.  Mostly
it's simply that the supporting tools aren't there yet, and the old
modutils package won't work.  If you revert back to 2.5.47 you might not
have these problems.
