If you built the kernel from source in the first place, you'd have all the
compiled stuff sitting around in your kernel source tree. Given that
situation, if you just make a little change to your kernel configuration
(such as turning on the loopback support) and tell it to make you a new set
of modules, it'll just rebuild as little as possible for you.
Of course, if you're running a pre-compiled kernel from your distribution
right now, you're going to be stuck recompiling the whole thing the first
... Contradiction [n]: I'm from the government. I'm here to help you.
