    Nice it works for you too !

    Symmetry is not broken, as we have :
    #define subsys_initcall(fn) module_init(fn)
    in include/linux/init.h where compiling as a module, and when not compiling
    as a module, I doubt the exit function is called unless you are shuting
    down your machine...

    Good point ! I expect the patches to be already in some queue waiting to be
    pulled !
