True, but then they lose procps and so on anyway, so we probably don't
need to worry too much about lsmod not working.

I'd be in favour of having things like /proc, INET, SysV IPC and so on
relegated to a seperate category in the kernel configuration, along the
lines of the 'Experimental' option we have now, so that people who don't
really know what they're doing don't get a chance to turn them off.
