2.6.5 module problem

Hi list,

I've been using the hostap drivers since way back, and
have been delighted with how well everything works.

But I've recently hit a snag:  I've got my Sony laptop
running Slack9.1, and I recently compiled a vanilla
2.6.5 kernel.  After compiling the hostap 0.2.0 driver, utils,
hostapd, and wpa_supplicant parts with no problems,
I get this error in dmesg when inserting either a Lucent
orinoco, or Linksys WPC11 (pccards).

hostap: version magic '2.6.5 preempt PENTIUM4 gcc-3.2' should be '2.6.5 preempt
PENTIUMIII gcc-3.3'
hostap_cs: version magic '2.6.5 preempt PENTIUM4 gcc-3.2' should be '2.6.5
preempt PENTIUMIII gcc-3.3'

and this error when trying to modprobe hostap_cs:
bash-2.05b# modprobe hostap_cs
WARNING: Error inserting hostap 
(/lib/modules/2.6.5/kernel/drivers/net/wireless/hostap.ko): Invalid module format
FATAL: Error inserting hostap_cs 
(/lib/modules/2.6.5/kernel/drivers/net/wireless/hostap_cs.ko): Invalid module format

What should I do to solve this problem?

Thanks in advance!
