I have done some more research. I have built and tested a patch
that should fix my problem and the problem with mod_dld.
The patch is included. 

Justifikation for the changes:
1.) interpreting total_modules as the numer of *statically* linked
    modules makes changes to total_modules unnecessary.
2.) But then, we have to allocate extra space, which was
    only partly done.
3.) Removing the check around module numbering ensures that
    num_modules is increased. (Which did not happen before since
    the index was already set in setup_prelinked_modules)

Furthermore, I have included my mod_dynamic module, replacing
mod_dld for COFF and ELF systems. It requires this patch to work.

Please give me a short note if this module has any chance of being in
the distribution, since I'll otherwise make it availible by myself.

Keep up the good work!
