Question is it possible to disable specific driver which is


when using modularized driver i can just:
$rmmod module-name
but is it possible to disable specific driver which is
compiled in with kernel?

for example, i have kernel with usb host controller
driver compiled in: ehci, ohci, and uhci.
when using this kernel on a computer with usb 2.0
controller by default kernel will use the ehci driver,
but because this driver does not work properly now i
want to use the ohci/uhci driver instead of ehci

Yes there is a way - unfortunately it's called "Recompiling the kernel".
