See the exaplanation right above the Makefile that your copied from  
the wiki page: http://wiki.freepascal.org/linux/kernel/module_development#Compilation

"In order to compile the kernel module, you need an object file called  
kernel_module_info.o. This file is generated automatically by the  
kernel build system."

Copy it to the same directory as the other files.
