kernel-2.4.0 networking

I noticed that on the system which runs 2.4.0test10 kernel
ifconfig lo
gives something like "modprobe: can't locate net-pf-9"
This net-pf-9, IIRC is the request for loop.o
( if case you compiled network loopback as a module ).
IMHO it's a leftover from 2.2.x, because 2.4.0 kernel config
doesn't even have such an option - loopback must be molded
in the networking code.
Neverthless, lo gets brought up.

Any different experience ?
