I suspect this installed a bunch of kernel modules as configured in your
kernel source, overwriting the modules that were already there.

I doubt this is the problem. I reckon you just need to replace the newly
installed modules that aren't working with the old ones that were
working. If this was a .deb kernel, then it could just be a matter of
re-installing that. I don't know if a dpkg-reconfigure of it will
overwrite the modules.
