What PR number?
Just to note that if you really need LKM stacking you can have it
even with the current framework:
"modload" allows to specify the file to link against (-A) and
an "output file" which contains the symbols of the loaded
module (-o). So you can stack them if you link the upper module
against the "output file" of the lower one, and you can
wrap this into some scripts and/or Makefile targets which keep track
of the currently valid symbol table.
I'm doing so for years. (Not that I want to defend the LKM framework
too much, but there are problems which can not be dealt with that
