Not having used this route to 2.6 heaven, my only comment would be to check
that /proc/sys/kernel/modprobe contains /sbin/modprobe.  If not, then odds are
hotplug will be wrong too (should be /sbin/hotplug).  Take a poke at
/etc/rc.d/rc.sysinit, and do s/ksyms/kallsyms/ and that should fix it
permentantly (but then breaks things for 2.4, beware).  It's trivial to make
it work for both...
