Kernel Modules: efficiency difference?


Is there any difference in efficiency when loading modules at startup VS loading them later using insmod,etc. ??

Only on that the less that is loaded at boot the faster it will boot, OTOH you'll be wasting a bit of time insmodding all your modules. BTW, insmod is depreciated, modprobe is the replacement.
