Well, I don't know what I thought I was doing before, because modprobe 
appears to still give full module information when it can't find a
module; it's just that in this case the module being asked for is the
empty string (""); kerneld is calling modprobe with something
equivalent to:
/sbin/modprobe -k -s ''

So maybe this is a bug against kerneld, as I can't imagine a normal
situation that would cause it to ask for an empty module.

And I have no idea what module binfmt-0 might be; it doesn't appear as 
one of the aliases on my machine's modprobe -c.
