I'd love to.  There is one little problem.  Or rather, there are several
little problems, specifically, alpha, hppa, m68k, mips, ppc, and sparc.  
Busybox insmod requires a little bit of arch specific code for each
arch.  So far, only x86, arm, and sh are supported.   So if I turn it on,
I will get nasty emails from the autobuilders saying:
    #error Sorry, but insmod.c does not yet support this architecture...
