There is no ETA on that fix. It is extremely hard because on 2.6, modules
no longer keep their own ref count, and unloading "should not be done". We
don't agree with thatphilosophy, but we cannot change it in the linux kernel.
We don't know why it crashes on unload. It won't be fixed in 2.4.5 unless
someone else gives us a fix/workaround for it.
