    2 ideas:

    Printing if the tainted module is loaded or unloaded

    and/or

    using the /proc/tainted interface to enable/disable loading of tainted
    modules.

    So that are 2 different things: a) how do we handle the tainted mods
    notifications and b) if we let the user decide if he/she wants tainted
    modules to be "blocked"
