Just some check-points:

- Did you run "make modules_install" after "make modules" ?

- Does kerneld run?

- Have you tried building the (optional) kdstat (in the kerneld
directory)? A "kdstat debug" will make kerneld tell you what
it is doing. A "kdstat nodebug" will make it silent again.

- What does "modprobe -c" do? Does it tell you _anything_?
