Thanks - I think this solved my problems. I did a clean rebuild of the
kernel but made sure /lib/modules was empty before the make
modules_install. After that the complaints went away.

The reason for the "I think" is that I removed some modules that I didn't
really need in the rebuild. I did keep the IPv6 and it seems to be working
