Are you compiling your module against git master then copying it into
the 0.9.22 tree? If so this won't work. You need to keep the whole tree
the same. You can probably get away with checking out the v0.9.22 git
tree and compiling your module there but really you shouldn't try and
mix and match your self compiled module with your system compiled PA.
