Try with "insmod -f" : that load module even if the version of the
running kernel and the version of the kernel for
which the module was compiled do not match.

I've this example:

#define MODULE
#include <linux/module.h>

int init_module(void) { printk("<1>Hello, world\n"); return 0; }
void cleanup_module(void) { printk("<1>Goodbye cruel world\n"); }

I'd like to conclude with a positive statement, but I can't 
remember any. Would two negative ones do?       -- Woody Allen
