The config file provided by us makes no such recommendation.

The os_specific test runs different tests depending on the O/S you are

I assume you are using Linux, so there are two tests runs. The
'loaded_modules' test, checks the modules currently loaded on your
system, but since you don't have /proc/modules you can disable this
test. The 'avail_modules' test checks the modules on disk. It requires
the pathname to the modules, which is usually something
like /lib/modules or /lib/modules/ (where the O/S
version is determined from 'uname -r'). You can set the pathname in the
config file if RKH can't work it out for itself.

I would suggest disabling just the 'loaded_modules' test.
