unresolved symbols trying to insert module


I am getting unresolved symbols trying to insert a module:
lanthanum-ini src-1.0.1 # insmod sch_xcp
Using /lib/modules/2.4.32/kernel/net/sched/sch_xcp.o
/lib/modules/2.4.32/kernel/net/sched/sch_xcp.o: /lib/modules/2.4.32/kernel/net/sched/sch_xcp.o: unresolved symbol unregister_qdisc
/lib/modules/2.4.32/kernel/net/sched/sch_xcp.o: /lib/modules/2.4.32/kernel/net/sched/sch_xcp.o: unresolved symbol register_qdisc
However, I've verified I have the correct support built in the kernel, and even "nm" my image:
lanthanum-ini linux # nm vmlinux | grep register_qdisc
c0399200 R __kstrtab_register_qdisc
c0399240 R __kstrtab_unregister_qdisc
c039ebc8 R __ksymtab_register_qdisc
c039ebd0 R __ksymtab_unregister_qdisc
c02eda40 T register_qdisc
c02edaf0 T unregister_qdisc
I completely cleared all images out of my /boot and installed this kernel image... and i still get the same exact unresolved external symbols.

I am truly running out of ideas.

Anyone have a clue?

sometimes if you go back and add suport for something like
but don't do a complete rebuild with
make clean
make mrproper

the kernel won't work correctly
