Linux allows you to load and unload kernel modules, while the system is
running, to add and remove stuff as you need it.  But this is moot because
Linux also allows you to increase shared memory (up to the total
addressable memory)  while the system is running.  Recompiling Linux
kernels is a thing of the past with modern distributions.
