If you use the akmod, rather than kmod, package, it *automatically*
recompiles (if and when needed by kernel changes) during the system
I was sceptical about doing that, thinking that it'd make every boot up
slower, as it worked out whether it needed to recompile or simply use
what it'd made the last time. But that hasn't really been a noticeable
problem. Likewise, I wondered about the time involved in recompiling,
when it had to; it wasn't that bad, and it didn't foul up, either.
