SubjectRe: Problem with module versioning in 2.4.0
Well in any case, the problem was solved by my turning off module
versioning. Regardless of how and why. All other things being equal
(as in the .config I provided) CONFIG_MODVERSIONS=y produces the errors
reported (PCMCIA not working, and unix.o not loading) and when it is not
defined, everything works smoothly.
