And you tried booting the 2.6.26 kernel, re-extracted the module source into a clean directory and trying building from there and still had the same problem?

I actually suggested doing that before because I said it looked like there was something hanging around from the last time you compiled it. Did you ever do a "make clean" like I had asked? If you compile for one kernel using "make" and then switch to another kernel and do not do a "make clean" to remove the object files from the previous build make will assume everything is up to date and not actually compile anything. So then the "make install" would have just installed the object files that you built from the previous kernel.
