Not the ia64/Itanic package :-)

Yes, this looks perfect.  In fact at 1608 bytes [sic] this is pretty
amazing.  I checked, and the binary does appear to work.

# ls -l /usr/lib/klibc/bin/insmod 
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 1608 May 18 14:27 /usr/lib/klibc/bin/insmod
# ldd /usr/lib/klibc/bin/insmod 
  not a dynamic executable
# file /usr/lib/klibc/bin/insmod 
/usr/lib/klibc/bin/insmod: ELF 64-bit LSB executable, x86-64, version 1 (SYSV), statically linked (uses shared libs), stripped
