Yes, I think it not yet handled because you're checking the cores MMN
# at compile time.

I think we need an accessor or macro to retrieve the flags that looks
at the module_struct being evaluated which I think also has their
compile-time MMN baked in.  Probably best to have this be a simple
function rather than a macro.
