The usage count will almost always be == 0, since it is increased
only while the module loads an a.out binary/library.
You will see it non-zero only if you happen to look at the
precise moment this is happening.

So, this is an indication that you have some a.out binaries/libraries
that are frequently handled by the module (and rather quickly as well...).

It takes time to replace all a.out binaries with ELF versions,
by hand... I know, I'm doing it myself, since my setup is a
personalized mix of separatly downloaded sources from everywhere...
