You can just blacklist the devices for which you don't want modules

Thanks, but no thanks. ;-)
This is a server, and I see no reason to run hotplug on a server (same
for discovery, PCMCIA, yada, yada, yada). In fact I think hotplug on a
server is a security risk because it allows anyone in the datacenter to
walk up with a USB dongle and possibly wreak havoc.
Any other ways to stop the kernel/boot-process from thinking this is a
desktop that needs a bunch of fru-fru stuff loaded?
