I'm not going to do your homework for you. :) Try it and find out for
yourself. I will tell you that given that rc.d/kld runs right after the
disks are mounted means that (unless you are netbooting) you can put
just about everything that isn't directly related to mounting your disks
in kld_list. Beyond that, you just need to experiment on your own.

Good luck,
