Because i've almost the same sizes:
I used the file-command and got the following:
video ttpci # file dvb-ttpci.ko
dvb-ttpci.ko: ELF 32-bit LSB relocatable, Intel 80386, version 1 (SYSV),
not stripped
video ttpci # ll
total 1736
drwxr-xr-x   2 root root    4096 Apr 20 23:47 .
drwxr-xr-x  12 root root    4096 Apr 20 23:47 ..
-rw-r--r--   1 root root  171961 Apr 20 23:47 budget-core.ko
-rw-r--r--   1 root root  171185 Apr 20 23:47 budget.ko
-rw-r--r--   1 root root 1336825 Apr 20 23:47 dvb-ttpci.ko
-rw-r--r--   1 root root   67732 Apr 20 23:47 ttpci-eeprom.ko

Does this help in finding an answer?
