Subject: provides modules that are already built in kernel

Package: kfreebsd-5
Severity: normal

It seems that all modules are provided in the package, not just those that are
not in kernel.

This is not just a waste of space (they can't be loaded), but also disruptive
for tools like kfreebsd-common, which make a list of modules that can be loaded
and present it to the user.  If the user picks any of them, they'll just fail to
load (latest kldutils treat this as warning only, though).

As a workaround, perhaps it'd be a good idea to remove network drivers from the
kernel image.  This shouldn't be a problem assuming kfreebsd-common works
properly (a pre-requisite for this is Depending on kfreebsd-common, of course).
