I get the following out of a 'make install' from the xen-unstable tree on

  INSTALL sound/usb/snd-usb-lib.ko
  INSTALL sound/usb/usx2y/snd-usb-usx2y.ko
if [ -r System.map -a -x /sbin/depmod ]; then /sbin/depmod -ae -F System.map
-b / -r; fi
WARNING: //lib/modules/ needs unknown
symbol dma_get_cache_alignment
make[3]: *** [_modinst_post] Error 1
make[3]: Leaving directory
make[2]: *** [build] Error 2
make[2]: Leaving directory `/home/sdague/xen-unstable-fresh'
make[1]: *** [linux-2.6-xen-install] Error 2
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/sdague/xen-unstable-fresh'
make: *** [install-kernels] Error 1

Which thus is a broken build process.

Removal of the b44 module, which won't work anyway given the unresolved
symbols, removes this failure on 'make install', so it runs through clean.
