Yes indeed. Turns out that the kvm package is installed, and that this
places a startup script into init.d. Since I typically use VirtualBox
(which will not run with kvm loaded) rather than some of the other
virtualizers that rely on kvm, I'm going to try removing the package.

If I need it again in the future, I'll just add:

    modprobe -r kvm-intel kvm

to /etc/rc.local to remove it except when I want to load it manually.

Thanks for pointing me in the right direction!
