The CentOS way of "Build Your Own Kernel Modules" is described in this
CentOS wiki article:


I suggest you try method 1 first to see if you can build your module.
Once confirmed, you may want to proceed to method 3 to build a
kABI-compatible module.

You can ask further questions about kmods either here, or better yet,
on the ELRepo's mailing list. ELRepo ( http://elrepo.org ) builds a
number of kernel modules for RHEL/CentOS/SL.
