compile individual kernel module

Hi there,

I want to apply a patch to a kernel module.
Can I recompile this individual kernel module, and put the file xxx.o in the /lib/modules/... dir?

If you patch the module in your kernel source, then just run "make modules" and "make modules_install" then you should be there. It will only compile the modules that have changed. No need to make the entire kernel again.
