Yes, the cv mechanism, coupled with changing the semantics of module_autoload() (to not require the caller to obtain the lock) makes good sense here. I'm working on it and I should be able to post new diffs tomorrow.

OK, it's time for Round #3!

Attached are diffs that implement Adam's suggested cv-based solution,
along with moving the locking for module_autolock() into the routine itself (for consistency with other routines). I've also updated the module(4) man page this time around.
