git-net.patch (I'm guessing one of Daniel's commits, but not sure which one)
causes some complaints:
 
  LD      vmlinux.o
  MODPOST vmlinux.o
WARNING: vmlinux.o(.init.text+0x2263f): Section mismatch: reference to .exit.text:tcpv6_exit (between 'inet6_init' and 'ac6_proc_init')
WARNING: vmlinux.o(.init.text+0x22644): Section mismatch: reference to .exit.text:udplitev6_exit (between 'inet6_init' and 'ac6_proc_init')
WARNING: vmlinux.o(.init.text+0x22649): Section mismatch: reference to .exit.text:udpv6_exit (between 'inet6_init' and 'ac6_proc_init')
WARNING: vmlinux.o(.init.text+0x22658): Section mismatch: reference to .exit.text:addrconf_cleanup (between 'inet6_init' and 'ac6_proc_init')
WARNING: vmlinux.o(.init.text+0x226bc): Section mismatch: reference to .exit.text:rawv6_exit (between 'inet6_init' and 'ac6_proc_init')

Looks like the problem is that tcpv6_exit and friends are called from
net/ipv6/af_inet6.c:inet6_init() - which is declared as:

static int __init inet6_init(void)

I can see how calling an __exit from an __init would be Bad Juju...
