    Why? If you do an embedded system you go for minimal memory.
    You'd probably compile a kernel without module support. You know
    which hardware is to be supported, so you gain nothing at all
    by using modules.
    Frankly, even for a normal system, why compile an initrd for drivers
    you need during everyday operation? If you compile yourself at all, why
    pay the price in memory and TLB misses?
