The process of compiling and installing kernels is outside the scope of this document; refer to the Kernel Upgrade Guide for general guidance. In short, the process to get a modified kernel is the following:

  1. configure
  2. compile
  3. mount /boot (if not already mounted)
  4. copy new kernel image to /boot
  5. make sure the bootloader will reference the new kernel
  6. reboot

If one of those final stages has been missed, then the changes will not properly take effect.
