SubjectThe advantage of modules?
I'd like to know (I know, I'm being slightly off topic, while still
staying on topic, so I'm on topic...er...yes) if there is any
advantage, be it memory-wise or architectuarally wise, to use modules?

I already know the obvious points of if you are creating a distro that
it is usually good to make a very modular kernel for those wishing not
to recompile their kernel, but I was wondering if there were any other
advantages to using modules vs. making a monolithic kernel for a
kernel to be used only on one machine (with no other hardware support
at all)?

Thanks, and sorry if I'm being slightly off topic...
Kernels are fun! I wish I could learn more!
