Are you sure that the kernel configuration (.config) you had in the
kernel tree matches with the kenerl you are running? These unresolved
symbols could be caused by a mismatch in version symboling. You can
verify this, e.g., by running 'grep alloc_skb /proc/ksyms' and look
whether the symbol is following by a version symbol (8 hex characters).
The one compiled in hostap.o did not use versioning:
