Subject2.6.17-rc6 Section mismatch warnings
When I built 2.6.17-rc6 I see a lot of warnings after the MODPOST message
about Section mismatch. What did I do wrong in building the kernel and
modules?

I used these commands to build 2.6.17-rc6 on FC4:
$ tar xjf ~/Downloads/linux-2.6.16.tar.bz2
$ mv linux-2.6.16 linux-2.6.17-rc6
$ cd linux-2.6.17-rc6
$ bzcat ~/Downloads/patch-2.6.17-rc6.bz2| patch -p1
$ cp /boot/config-2.6.16-1.2096_FC4
~/KernelBuild/obj/linux-2.6.17-rc6/.config
$ make O=~/KernelBuild/obj/linux-2.6.17-rc6 silentoldconfig
(took the defaults for all new config items)
$ make O=~/KernelBuild/obj/linux-2.6.17-rc6 >make-1.log 2>&1
$ make O=~/KernelBuild/obj/linux-2.6.17-rc6 modules >make-2.log 2>&1

Here are some of the warnings:
