That doesn't mean anything - just that the module was compiled into the
kernel. (It's there to report the protocol number - in case somebody
needs it.)

Where there no messages at all from pf or pcd ? (If not, something
wasn't built correctly.)

If you use modules, you get a chance to enable some debugging that will
help us to help you.
