My machine does not have a /proc/modules directory, so I'm not sure if the following command will work for you:

'lzip -d <kernel modules folder>/*.lz'

I will wait for Your unofficial patch for kmod - I have also one question about
kmod experimental features, I just compiled kmod git version without
experimental features.

I'm afraid I can't answer any questions about kmod. I know very little about it.

Is this the source I need to patch?

If the changes required are easy, they may be ready in a few days. Else it may take longer.

BTW, has anybody verified if this change is worth the effort? I.e., has LZMA compression any advantages over gzip compression for kernel modules?
