    Yes. sys_create_module returns the address at which the module
    should be relocated; sys_init_module copies the now-relocated
    bits into kernel memory.

    The only other option would be doing PIC bits as in ELF shared
    libraries. Since there is no issue of sharing code between multiple
    kernels, there is no need for that complication. ;-)
