Scot, thanks for the patch. Really there is no consystency. ;-)
However, I'm not sure if the proposed behavior is desirable.
I.e. if a port loads kernel module but the system is not configured
to do it at next reboot, then a user may got very surprised. Esp.
if previous uptime was several months...
