As a (mostly) side note, this will be useful from the point of view of
security as well.  When there is a security advisory concerning an
optional module (compat/linux being the most recent example) it would
be nice to have a more effective workaround than "well, you can try
`kldunload linux`, but it probably won't work... if it doesn't work,
you'll have to reboot the system".
