Yes, you're right.  

If I use the module, it doesn't load with vanilla sources.  With your
patch of May 22, the module loads, but the machine hangs (locks up)
before it can finish booting.  First it hung at the dhclient stage,
second time it hung during the fsck (necessitated by the first hang).
This is with the madt line commented out.
