How to prevent modules from being loaded


a while ago, I asked the kernel maintainer how to prevent modules from
being loaded since now we have hotplug etc. that loads everything that
sticks to the kernel.

He taught me to set an alias to some nonexistent device. An ugly hack,
but it worked.

Now, not even this works for me:

alias snd xxx

leads to snd being loaded at boot time, but later I get:
# modprobe snd
FATAL: Module xxx not found.

So I need a new solution.

Any idea?
