The Linux kernel configuration item CONFIG_KMOD has multiple definitions:

This is being removed soon. These days, MODULES implies KMOD, so use that instead.

Automatic kernel module loading found in init/Kconfig

The configuration item CONFIG_KMOD:

Help text

Normally when you have selected some parts of the kernel to be created as kernel modules, you must load them (using the "modprobe" command) before you can use them. If you say Y here, some parts of the kernel will be able to load modules automatically: when a part of the kernel needs a module, it runs modprobe with the appropriate arguments, thereby loading the module if it is available. If unsure, say Y.

Kernel module loader found in init/Kconfig

The configuration item CONFIG_KMOD:

Help text

Normally when you have selected some drivers and/or file systems to be created as loadable modules, you also have the responsibility to load the corresponding modules (using the programs insmod or modprobe) before you can use them. If you say Y here however, the kernel will be able to load modules for itself: when a part of the kernel needs a module, it runs modprobe with the appropriate arguments, thereby loading the module if it is available. (This is a replacement for kerneld.) Say Y here and read about configuring it in Documentation/kmod.txt.
