module handling

I used an old busybox (1.9.1) before. With the latest one I have been
in trouble with rmmod.
It requieres a folder of /lib/modules/<name of kernel> ( it may empty)
otherwise it will not work.
Ok so far, you have just to know.

But then I compiled it as a embedded (not full blown) and get this
message while booting (system hangs):

request_module: runaway loop modprobe binfmt-464c

What does this mean? I found something related to 32bit and 64bit
kernel, but did't get a clue how to solve.
I compiled it for an ARM cortex A8.
