There was an effort to split the kernel:


This is yet a different case though.  I'm not sure how well the modular
kernel really worked anyways due to the spectrum of use cases (e.g.
in some cases you might have a cloud image that wants to drive a GPU
that's available via passthrough...)

Basically I'd say in order to do this we'd have to move to deployment-specific
images.  For example, we know in a virt environment we could drop a lot
of the drivers.

Dropping out sound cards is something that would cross all of the deployment
targets, but I'm uncertain about the win vs maintenance.
