Do we need insmod/rmmod?
I looks like the stock modutils-2.3.6 version of modprobe compiled with
"-Os" and when not compiling in insmod/rmmod weighs in at 44k (vs 62k
for the stock debian modutils version). I could probably strip modprobe
down a bit further by removing some more obscure features.
So I have several questions:
1) Would using something other than the stock debian modutils cause
2) Would anybody freak if rmmod and insmod arn't on the boot disk?
(or perhaps were kludged with silly modprobe -r and modprobe wrappers).
3) What do folks consider to be the essential feature set for modprobe
to do what the boot floppies need?
