Unhappy No module aic7xxx found for kernel 2.4.22

Hi there,
I am running RedHat 9 with the 2.4.20-8 kernel, and have been trying to compile and run the 2.4.22 kernel, so I can use it with the patch for intersil prismgt wireless. Everything runs fine:

make menuconfig
make dep
make clean
make modules
make modules_install
make install

but on make install i get the following error:

No module aic7xxx found for kernel 2.4.22
mkinitrd failed
make[1]: *** [install] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/linux-2.4.22/arch/i386/boot'
make: *** [install] Error 2

and no initrd can be created. I have an AHA-2930CU scsi adapter that works fine with the original kernel, and i compiled the new one for scsi support, with the low level driver for the aic7xxx. Also, i tried compiling w/o scsi support but still get the same error. Any ideas anyone? I've tried doing the /sbin/mkinitrd from /boot also, and get the same error. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

If I'm not mistaken, I think there is a kernel out that has the patch built in

Do you mean the intersil patch? Do you know which kernel it is? I still have the problem with the aic7xxx module, though. Any ideas? Thanks.
