Make sure you don't have duplicate modules (i.e. the same filename in
different directories under /lib/modules/`uname -r`).  Also make sure the
old modules have been unloaded from memory (use "lsmod" to check).

If you ever patched the kernel to add hostap to the source tree, make sure
to remove that patch and recompile the kernel.
