SubjectRe: daemon-less kmod & Alpha no-go!
How about trying the following:

cat << DONE > /tmp/logging_modprobe
echo logging_modprobe $* > /tmp/modprobe.log.$$
strace modprobe $* > /tmp/modprobe.log.$$

chmod a+x /tmp/logging_modprobe
echo /tmp/logging_modprobe > /proc/sys/kernel/modprobe

...and try loading a module. This will show you what system
calls modprobe executed.

You might also try modifying that shell script to echo something
to standard output, so that you can verify that modprobe has gotten
init's file descriptors.
