I need to correct myself.  When I wrote that the ecc

the part about difficulties with SMP was not quite stated right.  'ecc'
may be SMP capable, but even when SMP switches are enabled in Makefile,
'make' reports lots of compilation warnings and 'insmod ecc' complains
as follows:

ecc: unresolved symbol proc_register
ecc: unresolved symbol pci_find_class
ecc: unresolved symbol jiffies
ecc: unresolved symbol printk
ecc: unresolved symbol add_timer

Obviously, something has changed in the past year, so that old SMP
compilation commands no longer work.  I do not know the reason.
