It works, thanks!! Can we get this pushed to Linus before 2.6.28
opens? This is technically a regression since it was broken around
2.6.27-rc1.

Also, something we need to consider is getting distributions to ship
Modules.markers, and where it should be installed. I would argue that
it belongs in /lib/modules/`uname -r`, so maybe "make modules_install"
should put it there? This attention to deployability is going to be
important if markers are to be successfully used by applications such
as Systemtap.
