[PlanetCCRMA] module load - unresolved symbols?

I've just upgraded my studio system from a 1GHz PIII to a 3GHz P4,
the motherboard to an ASUS P4P800SE, and my video card from an NVidia 
FX5200 to an FX5700LE.  It came up just fine with the kernel from the 
original configuration, a 2.4.26-1.ll.rh90.ccrma kernel and the nvidia 
module 1.0-6106.

When I tried running nvidia-install --update, the module compilation
failed with the following message:

-> Kernel module load error: ./usr/src/nv/nvidia.o: unresolved symbol
   ./usr/src/nv/nvidia.o: unresolved symbol smp_num_cpus

It's always had to build the module before, but it's never failed like
this.  It's not a multiple CPU mobo, I've just got the one P4, so does
anyone know why it's looking for an smp symbol, and how to get around
