: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
