Using Keith Owens perl script I found in message;

I get ...

Finding objects, 438 objects, ignoring 0 module(s)
Finding conglomerates, ignoring 35 conglomerate(s)
Scanning objects
Error: ./net/ipv4/netfilter/ip_nat_snmp_basic.o .text.lock refers to

I'm sorry .. not on the list. Please cc me if you require more info.
