Ha ha ha, goodness me, yes I completely forgot the kernel component 
versions numbers are 9.0.x not 9.x. The *utilities* are 9.x. For some 
reason my mind has almost completely stopped seeing the 0 in the middle 
for the kernel module after all these years. :-) A couple mails back I 
even referred to the kernel module as both 9.x and 9.0.x in the same 
sentence, I really am losing it! Apologies if I might have led anyone 
else into insanity with me as well :-)
