I have a kernel that does not want to compile the modules before the
rest of the kernel.  I've worked around that, but it does raise a
question that maybe somebody knows the answer to, why are the makefiles
set  to compile the kernel-modules so early compared to the rest of the
A: Because it messes up the order in which people normally read text.
Q: Why is top-posting a bad thing?
