Hmm, that's hardly a newbie project!

arch/x86/kernel/module.c contains the module_alloc() code for x86.
You'd need to repalce that, and set module_free() too.

And it's not entirely clear that replacing it with kmalloc is actually
useful, since it will break CONFIG_DEBUG_SET_MODULE_RONX=y.

Cheers,
Rusty.
