I recently fixed a similar problem on x86-64. There the modules are outside
the vmalloc area, but also not in the direct mapping. I just changed
the module mapping and the kernel mapping to put themselves into the vmlist.
kcore checks vmlist first and then afterwards tries direct addresses.

Also the kernel addresses are negative, which needed some more changes
in seek.

Here is the 2.4.19 patch which should to 2.5 too.

I think it's a bit cleaner than yours and will probably help you too.
Just put everything special into vmlist too.
