Same problem with me, 
the fix is easy but difficult to find out (took me one day)

romfs-inst.sh is always stripping the files, this is ok for user space tools 
but if you compile kernel modules outside the kernel tree and install them with $(ROMFSINST)
they get stripped. Add a -S to $(ROMFSINST) and the following patch and you should be fine.
