It looks like you want to subscribe to  :)

But in any case, I would actually prefer to see some sort of kerneld or
lkmd running which receives load requests and checks it's "approved" list
for loading.  This will also make it possible to do dependcy checking
and such, since, for example, some things share a common code base (ahc
drivers for busses) with only bus-specific front ends.
