    The fact that users have problems with different binary-only
    modules not being available for the same kernel version seems
    to prove that the "interface" EXPORT_SYMBOL "defines" isn't
    stable.

    If it was, we'd have an nvidia driver for 2.4, not a whole
    serie for each 2.4.x kernel.

    regards,
