I downloaded the sources for my kernel, applied a patch and rebuilt it and now I have a kernel module that, when I try to insmod itinsmod, complains "Unknown symbol in module" with dmesgdmesg giving the error "disagrees about the version of symbol ...".

Without having to hunt down the source for this module and rebuild it against my kernel is it possible to somehow force the kernel to accept this module?

I realise this would be dangerous but I'll to take the risk if its possible.
