Very odd. It should not have even tried to load the module since
you built the driver in.
Hmm, I aware of this problem very well, although I do not have
a patch for DragonFly *yet*. But I did make a patch for fixing
this issue for -CURRENT.
The problem lies in sys/kern/kern_linker.c, because error
checking is not done in some places, or it's done incorrectly.
