Grepping the source tree on 6.2-RELEASE shows this message can only have com 
from one place : sys/kern/kern_conf.c in the function prep_cdevsw() :

if (devsw->d_version != D_VERSION_01) {
    printf(
                    "WARNING: Device driver \"%s\" has wrong version %s\n",
                    devsw->d_name == NULL ? "???" : devsw->d_name,
                    "and is disabled.  Recompile KLD module.");

Looks like the kernel and the modules are out of sync.
