Check the Makefile for errors.  Yes, the file is probably not going to
work unless some optimization is on.  Many of the port access commands are
done as inline functions, which don't get compiled in unless at least '-O'
is set.  So without optimization, the module is braindead.  

'-O2' works best for kernel stuff.  I'd be afraid of '-O6' breaking
