    Good point.

    Right now you need a module.c in each architecture defining all these
    functions. However, I think it would be cool if we didn't need this
    all of them. In case of openrisc, the architecture should only have
    to define a apply_relocate_add() function.

    Jonas, could you add a default implementation for each of the functions
    for include/linux/moduleloader.h, so that you only have to provide the
    one function?

    I think that an easy way to do that would be to add to kernel/module.c
    code like:

    #ifndef module_alloc
    void *module_alloc(unsigned long size)
    return vmalloc(size);

    Then each architecture that needs a special version can do
    #define module_alloc(size) module_alloc(size)
    in their respective asm/module.h
