Hi, trying to compile a Wifi kernel module on device, and I got the thing
to compile, but it comes up with *Error: could not insert module 8812au.ko:
Invalid module format* when I try and insert the module into the
running kernel.

I am running soft-float raspbian (the last one before they went

The module compiled without error and I have the latest kernel sources for
the kernel I am running.

This is the binary it's created:

file 8812au.ko 8812au.ko: ELF 32-bit LSB relocatable, ARM, version 1
(SYSV),BuildID[sha1]=0xddb377d047fb7cade40f13c399c37d787b247247, not

uname -a Linux raspberrypi 3.12.21+ #689 PREEMPT Wed Jun 11 21:45:12 BST
2014 armv6l GNU/Linux

What am I missing?
