Modules and 2.1.18+

Well, as we all know, module code has changed radically (probably for
the better), but nothing works. Because there is no support for module loading
(except for insmod, which is not good enough to run a system), I tried to
make a kernel with no modules at all. Sure enough, I got a 600k+ kernel, but
it loads and works "perfectly". That is, there are no adverse bugs that I
can see right now. But when can we expect a full modutils replacement? Not
a half-ready one, but a full replacement, where all utils are working?
