Me too..

"Modversions included

Modversions *is* being included... putting a message into the header
file shows it to be correctly included at compile time. However by the
time the C file is processed it the symbols it has defined appear to no
longer exist. When you put the patch into drmP.h it never re-includes
modversions (the pragma is not hit, because _LINUX_MODVERSIONS_H is
already defined) *but* the macros within it suddenly become active.

I'm confused!

Preprocessor bug? Demon possessed compiler?
