    slow !! end-user want to install a distribution fast !!!

    it need a lot to be friendly the compilation (ie: we cannot do only
    launch of make xconfig, not everyone now which options to select),
    what we can do is a detection of the module and recompile a kernel
    with the detected module for recompilation but there is too much error
    case that could not be handle.
