    Very odd.  It should not have even tried to load the module since
    you built the driver in.
	Hmm, I aware of this problem very well, although I do not have
	a patch for DragonFly *yet*.  But I did make a patch for fixing
	this issue for -CURRENT.
	The problem lies in sys/kern/kern_linker.c, because error
	checking is not done in some places, or it's done incorrectly.
