insmod ipv6 freezes current linuxppc-2.5 and 2.5-benh

I was trying to get a recent linuxppc-2.5 (or benh) kernel running on my
G4 Titanium Powerbook IV, and it wouldn't even finish to boot.
After some debugging, I found it was always crashing when sshd started.
That in turn was, because the kernel tried to autoload the ipv6.ko
module for sshd to listen at ::.
booting into single user mode and manually issuing 'insmod ipv6' shows
exactly the same behaviour: A full freeze, no more cursor at the
console, but still responds to pings from the network.
Firing up xmon seems to reveal it is looping somewhere:
pc is always between (count_relocs+0x34) and (count_relocs+0x40),
btw: The system is running a current debian 'testing'.
Is this a known issue? Any ideas?
