Shouldn't it depend on what kernel is booted rather then what kernels
Last I heard, you can only boot one kernel at a time, so only one
module should get blacklisted at a time?
Not that I understand how the kernel works, but it strikes me as odd
that you would want to make decisions on kernel modules based on what
kernels are installed.
