imho everything we can make a module - should be. sd card drivers, all fs
handling other than jffs2, sysfs and procfs, wifi, etc. etc.
yes - you can't boot the sd kernel off sd card then with rootfs there, but
root on sd is not something our production systems need. we can change the
packaging to build 2 kernels, 1 modular, 1 monolithic for kernel devs to
quickly test things with.
