How about listing the unresolved symbols that were related to Host AP driver modules? You can get this list, e.g., with 'depmod -ae'.

I did change modversion handling just two days ago and this might have caused the problems assuming you have kernel configured with CONFIG_MODVERSIONS.

Hmm.. i386 version of test_bit() is defined with 'const volatile void *' or 'volatile void *' and ARM version with 'const void *'..

I use 'volatile long' here.. 'volatile' could probably be removed to get rid of that warning.
