Areca 1220 drivers + FC6 = "Verify ELF error"

So Fedora Core 6 was released recently, and since it came with the 2.6.18 version of the kernel, it didn't include the Areca 1220 driver. (arcmsr.ko)

No problem, I thought, I'll just create a drivers disk... So I loaded FC6 on in a VMWare VM, downloaded the drivers from:

extracted, compiled, and copied the arcmsr.ko file onto a floppy.

When I attempt to insmod it on the other computer (Alt-F2 to get to the command prompt during an install) I'm getting this error:

Verify ELF error [sec 23] (assertion 184)
Module failed ELF checks

Does anyone have a clue as to what's going on here? `uname -r` and `uname -m` match on both the machine I'm installing on as well as the VM where I compiled the driver.

Looks like the ELF verify checks for things like file date... I had to:
echo arcmsr.ko|cpio -ov |gzip > modules.cgz
and then extract it on the other server:
gzip -dc modules.cgz|cpio -idumv arcmsr.ko

Course now I've got version magic issues with 586 and 686, but I think that will be solvable with some extra compile flags.
