Well, since neither one of us can reproduce it on recent kernels it looks like 
the root cause either went away, the problem was resolved or we are just 
getting lucky with a timing windows somewhere.  Sigh.

I guess I should just be happy it is no longer happening :)

I also wonder about other arches, heck, even 32 bit x86.

Yes, I wouldn't expect the above commit to resolve the modprobe issue that 
Matt reported since init_module returns an int.  The commit above should only 
matter when the syscall returns a 64 bit value (long, etc.) on a 64 bit 
system.
