Is there a reason why systemd-modules-load is loading modules
sequentially? Few things can happen simultaneously like resolving the
symbols etc. Seems like modules_mutex is common on module loads which
gets locked up on few occasions throughout the execution of

The other thought is, what is the preferred way of loading modules
when they are needed. Do they have to be loaded on ExecStartPre= or as
a separate service which has ExecStart that uses kmod to load them?
Wouldn't it be useful to have something like ExecStartModule=?
