Good idea.  I've uploaded both outputs if someone wants to take a look.
Not surprisingly, "bad" output is shorter: readelf(1) reported only 16
section headers vs. "good" 18 (missing .got, .gnu_debuglink, and empty
.bss, yet having .eh_frame instead).  Haven't look more closely yet:

Sure, at the same URL, hello{.c,_bad.ko,_good.ko}.  Although it should be
pretty easy to reproduce locally: just install fresh devel/binutils, put
$localbase/bin in front of your $path, and rebuild hello.ko (or any your
favorite module).
