Such is the pain of maintaining out-of-tree kernel modules. It sucks, I know.

One thing that we do with our kernel modules, to make this easier, is
we set the version to "2.6.27" instead of "" so that when .9
is released, we don't need to rebuild all modules (they still need to
be tested, however)
