I guess I'm looking at it differently. In Rawhide:
1. Addon modules are built against a specific kernel.
2. when a newer kernel is built in rawhide, the modules are not rebuilt
3. the kernel that the modules matched has been replaced by the newer
kernel in rawhide.
At this point, where would I get the kernel and modules that match up?
