Good day, good ppl of the list

Potato seems to have changed the way modules are handled somewhat
compared to slink.  I thaught I changed what ought be changed, but seem
to have it messed up somewhat.  When I now press lsmod it seems like
every module I have compiled has been loaded (most of them saying
unused), while what I really want is a full kerneld/autoclean setup
with no manually loaded modules.

Before I struggle further I'd just like to know exactly what files are
now of import, and more or less what should be in them?
