of course debian gives you a way to control what modules are loaded. look at

Debian systems should honor /etc/modules, and *not* continue to load
/etc/modules tells a system what TO load, not what NOT TO load. see
modules.conf for that.
you want entries like "alias module_name off" for modules that you don't
ever want loaded. see the docs for more details.
My /etc/modules.conf say this at the top:
### This file is automatically generated by update-modules"
# Please do not edit this file directly. If you want to change or add
# anything please take a look at the files in /etc/modutils and read
# the manpage for update-modules.
So, if I add a bunch of "alias .... off" to that file will I break
something? Also, if there is an update (kernel, modutils, etc) will I
loose those settings and have to recreate them?
