Consider the posibility that I might be talking about the general case

It never breaks anything for anyone as a module, only compiled in. Which
despite your moans about 'factual' things is a fact.

Can I suggest a rather more elegant solution would be to add a
"CONFIG_UNSAFE_PROBES" tristate (so you can decide if you want no unsafe
probing devices, unsafe probing devices only as modules, or anything goes)
