Maybe not. In the modutils-2.1.34, read the file kerneld/README.kerneld
(especially the part at the end about the "persist" extension). This
should do what you want, if the soud driver supports this, of course.

However, the builtin sound support is the safe solution. If the kernel is
too big, try "make bzImage" (if you have linux on a PC).
