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.
