load.root (loadmodule hole)

For anyone wondering what the loadmodule hole is, but not wanting to
grab the 8lgm exploit and try to grok it, the real secret is very
simple - and I can't understand why 8lgm didn't explain this in their
posting, rather than only in a comment in the exploit script.
The comment in question is:
# loadmodule has previously been fixed to clear IFS, apparently by
# putenv("IFS= "). However, we can still exploit system() by
# having IFS defined twice in our environment.
