    Grr. Initcalls *really* shouldn't depend on usermode helpers.

    That said, I'm not entirely shocked if they do. But could you try to
    describe *which* initcall it is? The call trace should tell you?

    I'm not saying the patch is wrong (and it may be what we have to do at
    this point), but I do think it would be even better if we could fix
    the real problem of initcalls calling usermode helpers instead...
