    Subject[PATCH][2.6.0-test6] fix drivers/char/misc.c module autoloading breakage
    drivers/char/misc.c was changed in 2.6.0-test6 to use the
    common list macros instead of its own list code. The first
    open does load the module and increment its use count, but
    a bug in test6 causes a failure to be reported anyway. This
    (1) signals an error to user-space where there is none, and
    (2) makes the module non-unloadable.

    Fixed by the patch below. Tested. Please apply.
