Basically, the module was compiled against a different kernel version
than the one you are running. If you are still running the standard RedHat
7.3 kernel, then you should contact the people that distribute the driver,
and ask for a said RPM. NVidia do the same thing.

Yep, if (as Niall pointed out) you have the 'rpm-build' RPM installed.
