Actually, no, this should work...
symbol_request() looks up the module containing the given symbol and does a
module_get() on it.
symbol_put_addr() looks up the module containing the given /addresss/ and does
a module_put() on it... so it /should/ be working; in fact it was. But
obviously it ain't for you guys for some reason.
Trent fixed a nasty bug in symbol_put_addr() for 2.6.17.. perhaps theres still
another one lurking?
