Re: performance cost of modules?

> Does anyone know the performance cost of modules?

They use a bit more locked-down RAM in the kernel than non-modular
drivers, however not generally a significant amount. Execution speed
should not be different. The thing you might be noticing is the delay
for run-time loading a module (via "kerneld") when you open a
particular device. If that is the case, put that module in /etc/modules
so that it will be loaded at all times.
