Subject: LKM panic

I'm trying to make a loadable kernel module which uses
the function "prom_enter" as defined in arch/alpha/alpha/prom.c .
When this function is called, "panic: prom_enter" arises.

This error could occur only if _PMAP_MAY_USE_PROM_CONSOLE 
is defined but as referred in  /arch/alpha/alpha/pmap.h, 
that macro could be defined only if _LKM doesn't exist.

The modul is naturally compiled with -D_LKM.

Any idea where the bug could be?
