On a tangent issue: I have machines which do not have USB, rsp. which
have USB disabled in BIOS.

No need to eat RAM and CPU cycles for builtin USB kernel modules just
for the sake of a couple of seconds speedup in booting [1]

[1] One of these machines is an ancient i586. On this machine, RAM is
such kind of tight (64MB), any spared memory is valuable. More built-in
kernel modules probably will mean the death of Fedora on this class of
machines.
