You are probably using hotplug.  One way to avoid loading unwanted
modules is to put them in /etc/hotplug/blacklist.  Another is to
deinstall the package completely and put only the modules you need
into /etc/modules.

As far as the extra filesystem drivers are concerned, they are loaded
by the initrd.  To get rid of them, unload the ones you don't need and
rebuild the initrd.
