Comment:

 At the moment removing most of those modules isn't feasible. During the
 boot process we scan the disk for available partitions we can upgrade, and
 need geli/journal/zfs and all the fs types available to do this. Also, the
 cd/dvd is unmounted when booted, and loading new modules would require
 another re-mount process to take place, which isn't normally done until
 actual data is being copied to disk.
