It's a easy way to get a bit more security.
A kernel module can do a bit more then a normal root user process and
more important it can hide things better.
These rootkits could just do something like `rm -rf /' but they mainly
do hiding processes so that this machine can get used for their stuff
Ok they can reboot the machine and load there own kernel, but that's too
