Perhaps, something could be fixed in the dynamic linker ?

I checked both i386 and amd64, and on both arches I can load geom_md.ko.
On the other hand, I do not use preloaded mfs images.  Can you explain
how to reproduce the issue, and what linker is affected ?  Note that we
have two kernel dynamic linkers, one is used on amd64 and mips, second one
is for all other architectures.
