I'm pretty sure it didn't have it when I was KLD'ing around (and who
the heck would guess that "Microsoft Sound System" would be the driver
for Crystal Semiconductor?).  I could be remembering wrong, since that
was a while ago, but I'm pretty sure I wouldn't have spent all that
time loading and unloading drivers to figure out which it was, if
it'd'a told me...

I'd say so.  It'd be weird that you could tell when you loaded them,
but not when you, say, compiled all of them in.  I never use KLDs when
I can avoid it.
