Thank you Matthew for your feedback.

Understood, and of course I'm not asking to make the kernel worst.

However, I think that there are some NIC drivers in the GENERIC configuration
that do not seem to be more important than the MLX ones (ixl, ixlv...), so I
think that MLX ones could have their place there too. In addition, as it is a
network driver, it is quite important (at installation time for example).

However, as you said :
2) it would slow down the boot time a little bit ;
1) it is incompatible with drm (main drawback).

Should we keep this request opened until arm uses linuxkpi from HEAD / until
automatic module loading method is the rule ?
