st.o module bug

I'm playing with a SCSI DAT drive on a BT-946 on my test machine, and have
noticed the following.

The system did not have a tape before, so I'd compiled pre-2.0.30-1 with
st as a module. If I tried to access /dev/st0 before loading the module
(no kerneld), I'd get an error about no such device...duh. If I then
insmod st.o, I still can't access /dev/st0 without rebooting first.
