My three comments about this:

1) It's hard to decide that we can say goodbye to plip (plip is not
   provided as a kernel module), since it is supported on 4.x-RELEASE
   fora long time.

2) Removing 'fwe' shouldn't work here; it is already removed from the
   boot kernel :-)  See src/release/i386/drivers.conf.

3) USB mouse driver can be moved to mfsroot.flp as a kernel module.
   drivers.conf and associated tools will do that.  It seems that
   there's enough space to put another modules on mfsroot.flp, so move
   it to there makes no functional changes.

Anyway, thank you for trying to fix this issue.
