You don't need to load another module, since __wake_up_sync is part of
the kernel. You are probably running into a problem with module
versions. When you do:

$ grep __wake_up_sync /proc/ksyms

you will probably get something like:

c01147e0 __wake_up_sync_R08c2a6b5

The _R08c2a6b5 part of the symbol name is the version, which comes
from the ".ver" files in your kernel include tree. You will have to
include <linux/modversions.h> to get the correct definition for

By the way, 2.4.7 is an extremely old kernel, and you may avoid
problems by moving to something newer.
