I agree that installation of kernel modules should be able to be
bypassed.  I'm just not sure if the determining factor should be
whether any modules have been installed via modconf.  That might be a
little tricky to implement, too, since I don't know how modconf can
communicate with dbootstrap such that the latter knows whether any
modules were selected.

Any other thoughts here?
