Subject2.4.0-test: rmmod -a without effect
Hi,

this is a 2.4.0-test11 system;
rmmod -a (modutils-2.3.21) fails to unload unused autocleanable modules:
modprobe -r behaves the same, BTW

root@cantaloupe:~ > lsmod
Module Size Used by
ppp_deflate 44736 0 (autoclean) (unused)
ppp_generic 25728 0 (autoclean) [ppp_deflate]
root@cantaloupe:~ > rmmod -a
root@cantaloupe:~ > lsmod
Module Size Used by
ppp_deflate 44736 0 (autoclean) (unused)
ppp_generic 25728 0 (autoclean) [ppp_deflate]

As the binary does just a syscall delete_module(0), I guess it's the
kernel's fault. Same behaviour with 2.4.0-test9 and -test11-ac2.

Is this known and to be expected?

Regards,
