This sounds like a good idea. But one problem I could imagine is that you
can build several different versions of a module, e.g.:
<M> Reiserfs support
[ ] Enable reiserfs debug mode
[ ] Stats in /proc/fs/reiserfs
If you build all modules you have 2x2=4 possibilities to build the
Reiserfs module and the question whether to enable the debug mode or not
has a big impact on the performance.

You only think this is a free country. Like the US the UK spends a lot of time explaining its a free country because its a police state. Alan Cox
