It's definitely greater than 0.  In recent memory (earlier this year),
we released a kernel image package that didn't contain any modules.
Naturally it was fixed quickly, but I'm sure it lead to at least a
couple of unbootable systems.

I think there were probably a couple other issues, but I don't know off
the top of my head.
