i upgraded qtmoko (not sure which version, how do i check?) a couple
of weeks ago, and tried to login via ssh last night. the red LED
started flashing (kernel panic if i recall correctly?), and the phone
froze. ssh was refused, with a 'no route to host' error. i rebooted,
and ran lsmod, which returned nothing, no modules loaded. so, i tried
depmod and got an error that /lib/modules/<kernel number> was missing

i looked in /lib/modules, and the only folder there was different to
my kernel number (gleaned from running uname -a). what's happened
here, can anyone help me fix it?

the kernel version i'm running is 2.6.29-rc3-v26

the modules installed appear to be 2.6.29-rc3-v21

my upgrade method was the one described here:
