People who don't want features available, should not enable
it (even modular) in their kernels.

Socket calls are going to auto-load protocols by default.

And you can work around this by defining a bogus alias
for that protocol family value in the module tools config
files.

So this bugzilla doesn't have a leg to stand on, I'm afraid.
