Whoa there - why do you want to strip the kernel modules (.ko files)?
The symbol information they contain is useful (and almost certainly
essential) in determining kernel oops messages / crashes etc.

I have always understood this to be a Bad Idea and avoided. They're not
stripped for a reason (I've confirmed the FC4 kernel modules are _not_
stripped)
