Comment (by bonefish):

 Something like this is already on my (virtual) TODO list, though in a more
 general manner. I was thinking of a settings file (a global one in the
 concerned installation location) that would allow to blacklist files in
 packages. packagefs would then simply skip those files and not publish
 them. This would not only take care of drivers, but any file (add-on,
 library) that may cause trouble.

 A similar feature (i.e. the functionality to select those files) would be
 needed in the boot loader menu.
