[PATCH] Updated module rewrite.

Convenient mega-patch:

You'll want the 0.4 version of module init tools:

Changes (roughly, it's been busy here):

        o Updated to 2.5.36
        o bigrefs and modules use a non-schedule-intrusive synchronize_kernel()
                o Makes it almost impossible to safely control own refcnts.
        o Mark unsafe modules at runtime
        o Experimental -F option to unload unconditionally
        o bigrefs use atomics
        o 0.4 module init tools do backwards compatibility exec of xxx.old
        o Probably lots of other things I forgot.

Cheers & thanks,
