Ahh, yes, you're right. There would have to be some script to redo the
blacklist file after every alteration.

On a side note - you can nicely blacklist a device through udev rules,
instead of blocking some module(s) from loading. For example:


SUBSYSTEM=="pci", ATTR{vendor}=="0x8086", ATTR{device}=="0x24d5",

This one would block sound (ich5) on one of my machines.
