About zmodload test segfaults

} I've gone through typing the zmodload commands manually and it is always
} the last one which causes the segfault regardless of the order in which
} they are loaded.

I still can't figure out how *loading* the modules can cause a seg fault
regardless of ordering, unless it's just the case that there are too many
modules to all be loaded at once.

My guess is that the failures on Solaris et al., which seem to happen at
the module *un*loading test, have to do with shared library linkage.  It
was wrong to simply discard all the dependencies and then unload.

Here's a patch to V01zmodload to force unloading to happen in reverse
dependency order, i.e., a module is only unloaded when nothing depends
on it, and then its dependencies are removed so it won't prevent some
other module from being unloaded.  If it's not possible to unload any
module that way, the zmodunload function calls zmodload -u to generate
the correct error message; this should happen only in case of circular

Please check whether this takes care of the zmodload test segfaults on
various architectures.

I wish zmodunload were suitable for use outside the test suite, but it
could be badly confused by use of module aliasing.
