[Assist] Problem loading acpi_call and tp_smapi kernel module

I recently installed Parabola on my ThinkPad and I would like to get
most of the ThinkPad's functionality running. However, when I try to
load the tp_smapi kernel module via modprobe, I get the error message

ERROR: could not insert 'tp_smapi': Exec format error

and dmesg states

thinkpad_ec: disagrees about version of symbol module_layout

The same happens analogously when I try to load the acpi_call module.

I'm running the linux kernel provided by parabola with no additional
modifications and both of the modules mentioned above are the versions
installed via pacman. Do you have any advice on how to solve this issue?

Below are some outputs that I hope are helpful. Please let me know if
you need additional information.
