Initial suggested text:

A static version of insmod

My concern is that it isn't very descriptive. The"Notes on static
linking" section (which would explain it) was commented out during the
fix for bug 1061. Those notes included 4 paragraphs. Only the last
paragraph dealt specifically with the deprecated method of building
pass1 of binutils and gcc statically so the other 3 paragraphs *could*
be readded but would still seem a bit out of place.

Suggestions? Comments?
