driver_add_kobj has a single user - iseries_veth. It is even documented
in the comment in the file.
And you build iseries_veth as a module but driver_add_kobj is not exported
which is why you get this modpost error.

Workaround: make the driver built-in
Fix: export driver_add_kobj or replace usage in iseries_veth.
