I believe this to a noticable regression due to bugs in the module
framework. It should support either link sets or _init sections.
If the latter is supposed to be the way forward, current linkset usage
should be adjusted and an appropiate place in the kernel for calling all
static initializers be found.

Thanks for the feedback. I am not familiar with the "_init sections" stuff - can you provide a reference or example?

Please also note that separating the crypto/auth stuff into their own modules later on will remove these "direct calls" to the initializers.
