Default nvnet and grsecurity - unresolved symbols while loading the module

I've got nVidia nForce motherboard (Asus A7N266-VM) with Debian sid (testing) and 2.4.24 kernel. Nforce requires custom nVidia drivers for it's integrated devices, of which I would need only the network (nvnet -module). It compiles ok with vanilla kernel.

After I patch 2.4.24 with grsec-1.9.13-2.4.24 the nvnet module gives the following errors while loading it insmod nvnet:

Using /lib/modules/2.4.24-grsec/kernel/drivers/net/nvnet.o
olved symbol netif_rx_Re383993c
/lib/modules/2.4.24-grsec/kernel/drivers/net/nvnet.o: unresolved symbol softnet_data_R0d86f467
/lib/modules/2.4.24-grsec/kernel/drivers/net/nvnet.o: unresolved symbol skb_over_panic_Raf03523c

/lib/modules/2.4.24-grsec/kernel/drivers/net/nvnet.o: unresolved symbol __kfree_skb_Ra3a11856
/lib/modules/2.4.24-grsec/kernel/drivers/net/nvnet.o: unresolved symbol eth_type_trans_Rec5bb1f8
/lib/modules/2.4.24-grsec/kernel/drivers/net/nvnet.o: unresolved symbol alloc_skb_R91db5102
Hint: You are trying to load a module without a GPL compatible license
and it has unresolved symbols. Contact the module supplier for
assistance, only they can help you.

Does anyone have solution for this?

recompile and reinstall. Everytime I install a new kernel, I have to recompile and reinstall the nvidia nforce modules.
