No, you always need to have the kernel booted of the same version and with
all the neccesary symbols to be able insert the module.
bzImage is the actual kernel and you will need to boot that one before you
can try to load the module.
A modprobe xfs would probably return a error if you don't run a xfs
capable kernel with xfs compiled as a module.
