Normal module-init-tools' modprobe has a --force-vermagic option,
which you could use to load umac.ko and ignore its vermagic info. I
don't see this option supported right now by busybox modprobe, but
should not be that much work to add it.

Of course this is a workaround, and the proper solution would be to
have the source for that module, but sadly that's not the case now
so ...
