I'm confused now. My point was that if you blacklist a module but the
initrd's haven't been rebuilt, you may still have the module in the
initrd. Honestly, I don't know, without looking, what net modules
might get included in the initrd, but if your initrd's are built with
a "most" modules configuration, it just may be in there. If that
module gets inserted during the initrd phase of the boot, no amount of
blacklisting will do you any good because it's already inserted.

But I'm not fully up on this thread, so I'll bow out now.
