After patch, I'm still having a unresolved symbol problem.
I'm using host-0.0.4 and redhat 9.0.
Is there anything wrong with the following ?

Host-0.0.4> patch -p1 < hostap-rh9-modversion-hack.patch
Host-0.0.4> make pccard
Host-0.0.4> make install_pccard

depmod: *** Unresolved symbols in /lib/modules/2.4.20-8/net/hostap_pci.o

I am surprised that nobody has reported this problem before.

Basically if you compile hostap modules for a redhat 9 box, you
will end up many unresolved kernel symbols when you install the modules.

The problem is that hostap would include linux/modversions.h file ahead
of all other header files, but in reality this file needs to be included
after linux/rhconfig.h file because many #ifdef's used there.

I attached a quick hack here which makes thing work.  I suspect
the true fix is in linux/modversions.h, which should include
