Correct. The current recursive makefile design means it is difficult
to get a definitive list of modules without excessive overhead. So
modules_install assumes that you have compiled the modules already and
lets the 'cp' command fail. The 2.5 Makefile redesign will get this

>grep _mmx_memcpy /proc/ksyms
> c01a4e20 _mmx_memcpy_R__ver__mmx_memcpy

Broken 2.4 makefile design.
The 2.5 makefile redesign will kill this problem once and for all.
