is there a way to somehow blacklist videobuf.ko w/o having to remove
it? The reason is that packagewise this belongs to the kernel rpm
which is managed by the upstream vendor (e.g. Red Hat, Fedora) and I
wouldn't want to nuke it - it would return anyway with the next kernel

Instead maybe some dummy alias or some remapping could be made to
effectively remove it from module-utils' radar w/o actually removing
the file? That would be much cleaner from a packaging POV.
