If you compile all of the modules into one binary executable then you 
get a big kernel which must be loaded from disk into memory (monolithic 
kernel). This will take some time & ressources.

Using modules means that the kernel can be customized into smaller 
components that can be added/removed at runtime. The core-kernel is much 
smaller & can be faster loaded (kind of modular kernel).
