Upgrade to modutils-2.1.85, it will fix your problem.

You should worry, you were lucky it did boot at all [I get the same
results on my 486!]. You probably compiled your kernel as a SMP kernel.
To fix this, comment out the #define _SMP_ line in the main Makefile,
and clean/recompile. You should do this, you will get a considerably
smaller kernel anyway.

I don't know about the others though. HTH.
