Yes, if you use nm you will see the via_hook_segment symbol in via_dma.ko:

$ nm /lib/modules/$(uname -r)/kernel/drivers/char/drm/via.ko | grep
00000e94 t via_hook_segment

But IIRC (based on other messages found via google) the bug is caused
by the DRI driver in the via drm module in the kernel; though I am not
an expert in the field so I might be wrong.
