The kernel Makefiles do not calculate module versions correctly under
all circumstances. When you get _R__ver_ in a symbol, the Makefiles
have silently failed. The only guaranteed solution when this situation
occurs is to save your config and restart from scratch.

  mv .config ..
  make mrproper (clean is not enough to fixup module versions)
  mv ../.config .
  make oldconfig
  make dep clean && make bzImage modules
  install kernel and modules
