reverting the mentioned patch is the most simple and straight forward solution
as the newly introduced option is not required and the generic module
activate/deactive mechanism can be used. Any other solution with redundant new
options adds more complexity or and possibly conflicts.

RB+ from me for the revert of 7ae03a19b3ca895ba5f97a6bd4f9539d8daa6e0a
