That doesn't mean the kernel is corrupt.  That just means you've got a 
bad module.  Remove the offending module (the one you just built most 
likely) from the list to autoload, run depmod, and then you should be 
able to boot into that new kernel again.

Re-installing the kernel is the lazy way of fixing this problem, to 
understand what you are trying to do, maybe you should dig into it a 
little more.  Especially kernel modules.
