* udev: builtin - use RUN rather than IMPORT for loading modulesTom Gundersen2013-03-18
| | | | | | | | | | The 'kmod' builtin, like the 'firmware' and 'uaccess' builtins, does not set any variables, so don't use IMPORT. Notice that this changes the behaviour slightly: the processing of subsequent rules for the event that loads a module will no longer wait for the module loading to finish. This is not expected to cause any problems, but we should keep an eye on it.
* build-sys: make loadable module support optionalTom Gundersen2012-11-20
| | | | | kmod is unecessary if loadable module support is disabled in the kernel, so make the dependency optional.
