Thanks for spotting this, after reading kernel/module.c it seems obvious
to me that you are right. The following simple patch fixes it:

--- linux-2.5.54/init/Kconfig.old 2003-01-08 00:05:12.000000000 +0100
+++ linux-2.5.54/init/Kconfig 2003-01-08 00:05:38.000000000 +0100

config MODULE_FORCE_UNLOAD
bool "Forced module unloading"
- depends on MODULES && EXPERIMENTAL
+ depends on MODULE_UNLOAD && EXPERIMENTAL
help
This option allows you to force a module to unload, even if the
kernel believes it is unsafe: the kernel will remove the module
