SubjectRe: 2.4.0-test9 ipv6 module refcount problem?
        It is nothing new, and works as intended.

Which is there to please Linus so that he didn't want
to rip out the entire modularity of IPv6.

Somewhen along 2.5 I hope to have enough time to separate
UDP, and TCP into their common modules, plus IPv4/IPv6
specific ones and have the entire shebang to do proper
usage counting. (That is, have a IPv6 ONLY system built
from modules -- unless someone beats me to that goal.)
