	I'm wondering what's status of LKM under NetBSD 1.3.3.
	.. on alpha.

	Unless I'm missing something obvious, it seems to be
	ulteriorily broken.

	As I see:
	-there seems be no modules in use.
	-the examples in /usr/share/lkm seems be out of date.
	-modload passes incorrect options to ld
        ('-T', should be '-Ttext' and '-A', should be '-R',
	plus uses '/netbsd' not the kernel which actually runs).
	-modbsd expect the module to be in a.out format,
	whereas kernel is in ELF format. that point I have up hacking lkm for now.

	Someone please tell me that I'm wrong and that lkm stuff are 
	not broken... 

	I wanted to do some kernel programming and it would be a really 
	usefull thing here.
