Then what's the point of it being a module?  If it's going to be loaded all
the time, then build it into the kernel and be done with it.  I never have
seen the point in /etc/modules except for people that use the packaged
kernels (where, of course, you want everything to be a module so you can
support the max hardware without having the kernel that ate Detroit).

Although I suppose for something like a SCSI adapter, you could then unload
and reload the module to get devices re-detected or something.
