    Not safely. Some symbols must be kept to assist insmod and hot
    plugging, strip does not know about these special symbols.

    Why do you need to strip modules anyway? I don't see the point unless
    you are critically low on disk space. Stripping the symbols makes it
    much harder to debug oops in modules, ksymoops needs all the symbols.
