unknown symbol in dmesg error

On a linux system if the dmesg is reporting an unknown symbol this is usually due to one of the following:

  1. The backports drivers didn't get compiled against the correct kernel.
  2. WLAN, CONFIG_BT, and WIRELESS were not removed from the kernel menuconfig.
  3. backports was compiled with different flags than how the kernel was compiled.
