It was tested up to the point where modload(8) causes ld(1) to spit out 
an internal error:

verde# modload -n nullfs.o
ld: internal error: aborting at 
/export/build/evbarm/gnu/dist/toolchain/ld/ldlang.c line 3847 in 
ld: please report this bug
modload: can't prelink `nullfs.o' creating `nullfs'

I ran out of time to figure out what the problem is, but it also happens 
with older lkm binaries...

Cheers, Steve
