Perhaps Âmake module' could end with a warning about this? eg

"For NAT-T support, rebuilding the kernel is neccessary after
 patching it for nat-t support using 'make nattpatch'"

Though we should make this conditional over detecting nat-t in the
current kernel build, which we should know since we just compiled
a module against it.
