I said that only because I believed that I had to do "configuer/make..."
for the kernel module., but Derek gave me the solution to avoid that steps.
In that case, I agree with you (although there are around the world some
makefiles which provide a "make uninstall". It is also convenient
to install on several machines with only a "make install", provided you
have an nfs mount of your server)
