No one can load kernel codes other than loadable kernel modules(LKM) that are 'enabled'. If you try to load an LKM that is not configured the Kernel will not allow it. And because only a dozen or so LKMs are enabled instead of, perhaps,
hundreds LKMs, it is easy to manage these.

You cannot simultaneously have "a dozen or so" kernel modules enabled, and
also CONFIG_MODULES=n.


Yes, I can with CONFIG_???? = y
