Re: [PATCH] mm/zpool: use prefixed module loading

Ok if the crypto request_module is changed it makes more sense to
change zpool's use of request_module; it looks like there are a couple
other places in the kernel using prefixes/aliases (although it's not
universal). I still suggest moving the MODULE_ALIAS() into
zbud/zsmalloc's #ifdef CONFIG_ZPOOL, though.
