Have you booted that kernel yet? I think depmod looks at the running
kernel to try to resolve symbols in modules. If you're running a modern
distribution, it'll run depmod during the boot process and resolve those
symbols once the appropriate kernel is running.

Make sure you keep your old kernel around, just in case it doesn't work
right. ;)
