usually i set "MODULES_OVERRIDE =", because i don't have time to wait for
buildkernel compiling all the modules. however i thought it might be handy
to have the kernel modules available, so i set MODULES_WITH_WORLD instead.
of course i know that building/installing a new kernel and keeping the old
modules is not really a great idea, because quite often the outdated modules
will fail to load.
yet for me it's a timer saver and still gives me the option of loading a
so personally i'd like to see MODULES_WITH_WORLD support stay. but if people
decide it should go then that's not too much of a problem with me. ;)
