:Well, yea, but I'd rather have a blocking kldload than a panic'ed
:system. There are probably more such places. Actually I think this
:limit business is stupid. Rather than panicing, we could print a
:warning and go on. The worst thing could be that we'll panic lateron
:because we don't have free memory anymore.
Well, there aren't too many places where M_LINKER is used, you could
adjust the code to pass M_NULLOK and deal with NULL returns.
We definitely do not want to block, since it will wind up blocking
