Yup, you found it. It is not that the standard FC2 loads it, it is that
it is not a module in the standard FC2 kernel (ie: it is part of the
kernel itself, in a way "always loaded"). I cannot build it as part of
the kernel in my package because otherwise I would not be able to build
the realcap module. A pain....

Perhaps in future kernel builds I have to include some script or
something that will autoload it at the beginning of the boot process.
