Yeah, there were 2 filesystem globbing based loops in there that were
the major killers... for every module load it was doing a "ls
/foo/bar/*/*/blah" which is ridiculously slow.

Weird. Same thing here. I assumed it was working because it was
balking before when it tried to load nvidiafb, and then stopped
freaking out. Apparently, though, nvidiafb is loaded here... and doing
nothing. So this udev rule to skip the modalias load fails... hrm
