Well the errors suggest that the module might not have been built at
all.  Posting this without including the errors, or even reading them,
was a bit of a waste of time.

Anyway, the "Can't locate module..." bit means that ld doesn't know
where the module is.  Have you tried running "depmod -a" after
building?  You may also want to try "insmod

Without the error message, there's not really a lot anyone who hasn't
used these can tell you.
