Cache the result in a dump of the resulting binary structs in disk (ugly). Or 
much better: have a run as daemon mode where one can stuff new modules names to 
probe to it through a pipe, that would avoid a zillion forks and execs too, or 
maybe split most of the code into a lib and use that lib from udev?
