unknown symbol sys_mknod in module?

My kernal (2.6.5) makes a call to sys_mknod. When I trying insmod'ing
the module into the kernel, it fails because sys_mknod is 'unknown'.

I can see an entry for this function in /boot/

However, I dont seem to have a /proc/ksysms file. When I run ksyms command I get the following error:

ksyms: QM_MODULES: function not implemented

Does anyone know why I am getting this error...or what step(s) I can take to determine the problem?
