At rpesent I jave exactly 41 kernel modules loading at boot time, which I would likke to eliminate boot lag by rolling a custom kernel with the 41 following modules in and someneedless or junk modules cut out.

oops I omitted three modules.
I'de also like to had cpu temperature monitoring to my custom rolled kernel, maybe even junk the unneeded virtual box kmods.
 
Why do you have 13 (thirteen!) firmware modules for wireless cards loaded? Why don't you just load the one module that is needed for your wireless card?
For temperature monitoring your probably want the coretemp(4) module if you have an Intel cpu, and the amdtemp(4) module for an AMD cpu.
