It does not appear to be doing so. The version of 2.5.51 that I have is
the bitkeeper version that I grab via bk.

Here is the output of "make install" for agpart.ko:

I grepped for "remap_page_range" found T remap_page_range R __ksymtab_remap_page_range
Binary file vmlinux matches

I found that in kernel/ksym.c at line 108 is the line that is suppose to
