east:/# uname -a
Linux east 2.6.7-1um #1 Sun Aug 22 01:26:26 EDT 2004 i686 unknown
east:/# insmod /ipsec.ko
insmod: get_kernel_syms: Function not implemented
insmod: cannot open /proc/ksyms No such file or directory

  Clearly I need a newer "insmod".
  Perhaps some other new libraries.
  Or maybe i need some backwards compat flag.
  Some executables cause the UML to core dump.

  Ideally, we want to test both kernels in each test run, so yes, new
  Secondly, we want to run all the tests on both kernels, so the test
cases have to be adjusted so that they can have some deltas between 2.4
and 2.6.
  Thirdly, we might want to interop 2.4 with 2.6.
  Finally, we might want to extend this to 26sec.

  So, just lots and lots of infrastructure work.
