That changes it dramatically. The numbers from the sycall until the
linked-in module are now down to 15-25 milliseconds, and for a few
large modules 50-100.

(One crazy exception is ipv6, which takes 620 milliseconds to link, no
idea what it needs to do.)

I'll compare a few bootup times with and without the patch, and come
back later today with the real numbers.

Thanks a lot,
Kay
