Bug in 2.1.130 Modulesupport?

I'm porting a driver for a transputer link adapter (B004 for
INMOS-Transputer) to Kernels >=2.1.130. as a module.
Now the problem is, that the use-counter gets confused, when calling
commands with system(...) with an opened device /dev/link.
after the call the Counter displayed with lsmod is decreased by 2.
Without calling system(....) the counter is after closing the device
at the value 0 and the module is removable.
Calling system produces the value -2 which makes the module unremoveble.

Perhaps someone has an idea....
