Please don't suggest that, it is counter productive. Having the debian
kernel build all modules is fine, we just need to find a way of more
selectively selecting what modules are loaded or not.

Saddly, the mess of mkinitrd's init script, both discovers and now
hotplug also playing in is a mess, and makes it more difficult.
