Adding a few modules to initramfs

Question

I want to ask a few questions before I take action.  I think it's better than asking questions after I have broken my system.  😉

In /etc/genkernel.conf we can add all of the kernel modules to the initramfs by un-commenting the following line:

 

# =========MISC INITRD CONFIGURATION============
#
# Copy all kernel modules to the ramdisk
#ALLRAMDISKMODULES="1"

 

This seems like it's all or nothing.  I just want to add the proprietary Nvidia drivers and the ath9k drivers for my usb WNIC in this case but it could be handy for quite a few other things as well.  In Gentoo groups of pre-defined modules can be loaded from /usr/share/genkernel/defaults/modules_load and this file does exist in Funtoo but the related section is missing from /etc/genkernel.conf.  Is it safe to enable this in Funtoo?  If so I could easily add custom modules from there.  If it isn't safe is there a better way to do this?
