Is insmod support for 2.4 kernels broken in the recent busybox releases?

I keep getting error messages about query_module....

Both 1.00 and 1.01 give the following error:


$ insmod pcipool
Using /lib/modules/2.4.26-ts9-ys/kernel/arch/arm/common/pcipool.o

To make this application work, you will need to recompile
BusyBox with a kernel supporting the query_module system call.

insmod: Not configured to support old kernels


although I have support for 2.4 kernels turned on in the config....

1.1 pre dies on the compile:


In function `$a':
: undefined reference to `query_module'
In function `$a':
: undefined reference to `create_module'


Any way to fix this or workarounds for this?
