Well, fortunately enough, it turns out not to be a general problem in the
build nor modversions related at all, but rather a messed up
drivers/ide/Makefile.

The specific problem here is that you have CONFIG_IDE = CONFIG_BLK_DEV_IDE
= m, but end up with ide-proc.o in $(obj-y). So that asks for ide-proc.o
being linked into vmlinux. However, since the whole drivers/ide subdir is
marked as "m" (CONFIG_IDE), it does not end up in vmlinux. Anyway, that's
not really what you wanted in the first place, so never mind.

There are more problems than this, but the appended patch at least gets
rid of this issue, it needs a

mv drivers/ide/ide.c drivers/ide/ide-main.c,

to work. There's still other unresolved symbols which need exporting.

Any of the IDE people interested in figuring this out properly?
