Mmm ... No. Even those modules that I don't know what is has to be
compiled for init (as defined now) eventually to work without errors. 

Getting up to init level 2 or 3 is one thing, but then there is no
obvious mapping between the names of "modules not found" and what driver
options should be enabled to get things back to normal.

BTW: I have some 1600 files in modules/drivers! :-D
