unloading modules in 2.2.x kernels

(well there are some 2.2 kernels out there, just pre-release)


For all you people using 2.1.x or 2.2 kernels, you will find that modules
are no longer automatically unloaded - you need to run "rmmod -a" to do
that.  The first time just marks the module as a candidate, the second time
will actually remove any that were marked (to avoid unloading and
immediately reloading a module).
/usr/local/src/linux/Documentation/kmod.txt has the details.
