Well, they are average _user space_ symbols..

How did that hostapd.o end up being copied into kernel module directory?
It is an object file for the user space hostapd daemon and it most
certainly should not be in that directory. hostapd.o is created when you
run 'make' in hostapd directory. However, I don't think 'make install'
in any directory should copy it anywhere..
