Very strange... I'm rebuilding two instances of the v2.6.35-rc5 with
your config: the first one is vanilla and the second one is patched to
revert the commit I talked about previously. I can already see the
first instance has the [in]famous R_ARM_REL32 relocation in its
module objects, unlike the second one:

    cedric at bare# readelf -r linux-2.6.35-rc5/kernel/configs.o | grep
R_ARM_REL32 | wc -l

    cedric at bare# readelf -r patched/linux-2.6.35-rc5/kernel/configs.o
| grep R_ARM_REL32 | wc -l

The patch was generated then applied like this:

    cd linux-2.6.35-rc5
    wget 'http://git.kernel.org/?p=linux/kernel/git/torvalds/linux-2.6.git;a=patch;h=d0679c730395d0bde9a46939e7ba255b4ba7dd7c'
-O d0679c73.patch
    patch -R -p1 < d0679c73.patch

I keep you informed about my tests.
