After looking at this again I'm fairly certain that this is the real
problem, so I've gone ahead and made the necessary changes. These changes
I made should become effective in daily built installer images as soon as
we switch over to the 2.6.25 kernel.
A confirmation that loading sun_esp does indeed work for you would still
be very much appreciated of course.
Thanks for reporting the issue and for providing the info that helped me
to spot the error.
