#701: kernel modules could be loaded automagically
 Reporter:  mjollnirpaul  |       Type:  System Enhancement
   Status:  new           |   Priority:  minor
Milestone:                |  Component:  Misc
  Version:  9.1-RC3       |   Keywords:  kernel modules
 1. By default, the system starts many unneded modules, e.g. if I do not
 have encrypted drives, no mirrors, no ufs, etc., why are these modules
 loaded anyway?
 2. Modules shall be loaded on-demand, when-needed automagically.
 3. Is it a good idea to have an initial RAM-disk image containing the
 kernel modules and some logic to detect which modules to load like in
