Rusty, if you continue to ignore criticism, I have only one answer left:

http://www.xs4all.nl/~zippel/restore-modules-2.5.59.diff

These numbers are quite interesting:

This patch still has modversion disabled, when Kai finishes the new
modversion support, I'll add the support for it to modutils.

bye, Roman
