I hope you haven't released yet. :)
Here are a pair of patches that address the problems Alan found.

Still working on the fix for the hack in patch 9 (fail noisily on
non-ELFs) and the bounds check for next_string().

[PATCH 1/2] fix minor strtbl_free and strtbl_add problems

- add missing NOFAIL to strtbl_add() in load_dep_syms()
- export strtbl_free()
- free string tables with strtbl_free()
- documentation fix

[PATCH 2/2] elfops: fix potential crashing bug in load_symbols()

get_section() returned an undefined section size on failure,
which could cause load_symbols() to crash if kernel symtables
were missing from the module.

get_section() will now return secsize == 0 if it fails.
