Put the following in you kernel config:

makeoptions     MODULES_OVERRIDE=""

This will prevent the building of all modules. So you will only get the
devices built into the kernel. If you do wnat something to be built as a
module, put it between the quotation marks, e.g. MODULES_OVERRIDE="wlan ral".
