3.2 seconds as usual.

However, I now get
Sep 12 18:32:25 artin load-modules.sh: Not loading module '8139cp' for 
alias 'pci:v000010ECd00008139sv000017AAsd00002074bc02sc00i00' because it 
is blacklisted
in my everything.log. In earlier load-modules version, blacklisting 
8139cp would have also disabled 8139too, which is necessary for my LAN.
