Can you explain this?

Hollis told me it should have been only an error.
I was getting this fatal in the early stages of porting (after I got the
ieee calls working and before I got the mm.c problems).
So I left it in the final patch.
Hollis, could you confirm / infirm that ?

What do you mean "confirm"? This is simply not a fatal error. If you don't have a prefix, you cannot load modules, and that's all.

I need this same change as I've been trying to boot on qemu. It should be committed.
