Btw, couldn't the module/non-module issue be solved like this:

int module_do_blah(struct blah *blah, didel_t dei)
#ifdef __MODULE__
{
locking_code();
pure_module_do_blah(blah, dei)
unlocking_code();
}
int pure_module_do_blah(struct blah *blah, didel_t dei)
#endif /* __MODULE__ */
Just an idea...

Thunder
