If modload-from-modcmd is found necessary, sounds more like a case for

Recursive lock is the way to go.  I think the same lock should also cover
all device configuration activites (i.e. autoconf) and any other
heavy lifting where we have chunks of the system coming and going.

OK, I'm willing to make an attempt to implement the recursive_lock if noone else wants to give it a try! It will probably take some time...
