Yup, that's why that theory came up, but when I checked my config:

$ cat .config | grep NETLINK
CONFIG_COMPAT_NETLINK_MESSAGES=y
CONFIG_NETFILTER_NETLINK=y
CONFIG_NETFILTER_NETLINK_ACCT=y
CONFIG_NETFILTER_NETLINK_QUEUE=y
CONFIG_NETFILTER_NETLINK_LOG=y
CONFIG_NF_CT_NETLINK=y
CONFIG_NF_CT_NETLINK_TIMEOUT=y
CONFIG_NF_CT_NETLINK_HELPER=y
CONFIG_NETFILTER_NETLINK_QUEUE_CT=y
CONFIG_NETLINK_MMAP=y
CONFIG_NETLINK_DIAG=y
CONFIG_SCSI_NETLINK=y
CONFIG_QUOTA_NETLINK_INTERFACE=y

that theory went away. (also confirmed by not finding a netlink module.)

What about the kernel .text overflowing into the modules space? The loader
checks for that, but can something like that happen after everything is
up and running? I'll look into that tomorrow.


Thanks,
Sasha
