Yay, someone finally posts something to -motu that I can help with.

This should give you an idea what to do:

jonathan at disclaimer:~$ dpkg -S pwc.ko
jonathan at disclaimer:~$ sudo apt-get --reinstall install

dpkg -S will search for which package the file belonged to. After that,
you just do a reinstall of the package that will extract all the files
from the Debian package again. Note that your kernel version might be
different to mine, or you might have different kernel versions
installed, so you should probably do an apt-get --reinstall install
linux-image-`uname -r`
