loaded modules association wrong?
Looking at 'lsmod' output you get 3 columns: module, size, used by
in a laptop I see the cardbus socket get 'pcmcia' and 'yenta_socket' which is fine, but these 2 get associated with the 'b43' and 'ssb' wireless modules. The 'pcmcia_core' is "used" by 'b43, ssb, yenta_socket, pcmcia, rsrc_nonstatic'.
Obviously the cardbus socket is empty. If I wanted to use it for something would the association shown affect this electrically?
Can I prevent these modules doing this (except blacklist!) or is it a quirk of their compilation/kernel/distro?
