Some modules need other modules. To figure out the used modules, do a
"lsmod" on a standard (non mulinux) machine. Look at the dependencies
between the modules and copy all needed modules. If you insert modules with
modprobe dependencies are recognized. If modprobe is not in mulinux, load
the modules in the right order.
