Well doing a list of the modules in the current linux-image-2.6.12 on
i386, and then deleting from the list sound, and netfilter and anything
else obviously not needed and probably a few things that would be
needed, I got down to just under 400 modules. Probably most
architectures would have less. how one would automate doing such a
filter I am not sure.

Well unless you have a 386/486 which is still pretty slow. :)
