Guys, could you lay off whatever the fuck you are smoking? And
I mean everybody involved.

* autoconfig is part of ESR's wet dream. Ignore him and he'll go away.
* Aunt Tillie and her magical mistery whorehouse <<--->>
* performance problems with modules are real, need to be solved and
can be solved.
* disabling module loading doesn't buy any security.
* it's easy to make irrevertible disabling modules _after_ boot.
* initramfs is independent from modules
* it is _not_ initrd or an analog
* it doesn't involve a shitload of extra files
* it removes tons of crap from kernel
* it allows to simplify build process and get rid of quite a few sources
of bugs, _if_ performance problems with modules are solved

Now could we fscking drop these threads? Or at least take care to separate
myths from reality before posting more crap.
