No, I still do not understand it. The "if no found" block is basically just
an abridged version of what happens after. Moreover, remembering what Zefram
said: "Problem is you can't call that function without loading the module,
and you can't successfully load the module until you've got that
information." And look what happens here:

    if (!(node = find_module(name, 1, &name))) {
        if (!(linked = module_linked(name)) &&
            !(handle = do_load_module(name))) {
            return 0;

i.e. we imediately try to dlopen() a module and in the worst case it
obviously fails because no dependecies were loaded. Something is wrong here.
