I've built a kernel with loadable module support for various reasons, one of them the possibility to compile modules and load them without rebooting. This is supposed to be useful when I need a module that I had not enabled in the kernel config.
Now, with drivers like nouveau, it's as easy as going to the source directory, and running
make M=drivers/gpu/drm/nouveau. How can I build an updated
iptables module without compiling a whole kernel and rebooting? Is it even possible?
