Well, yes, but while installing into a final location all these .ko
files could be renamed to have .o extensions. This would avoid
screwing up user-space utilities. It is not that difficult to

exclusively 2.5 kernels) but who knows how many other things
will have to be modified introducing gratituos incompatibilities.
