Yes, I long ago wrote a script to do that automatically. Its launch is the
last line in rc.local. If its a reboot and the module is present, it does
nothing, if its missing, it builds and installs it as part of the boot
process so I don't have to worry about it. I sat here and watched it build
the module for 126.96.36.199-107-fc8.
I can post the script, and how its setup, if anyone is interested.
