Subject[PATCH 9/9] Revert "Driver core: let request_module() send a /sys/modules/kmod/-uevent"
Date
This reverts commit c353c3fb0700a3c17ea2b0237710a184232ccd7f.

It turns out that we end up with a loop trying to load the unix
module and calling netfilter to do that. Will redo the patch
later to not have this loop.
