I just tried out ibcs-970212 with pre-2.0.31 and found that it didn't
work. Loading bombed out with

apic_reg undefined
Loading failed! The module symbols (from linux-2.0.30) don't match your linux-2.0.30

The problem is that SMP is configured as default ibcs2; however, my
non-SMP kernel does not provide that symbol.

Would it be possible to supply a dummy apic_reg so that the same
binary module can run on both SMP and non-SMP kernels? Or would
this break and burn something, horribly?
