Hmmm, long list, depending on what hardware you have.  (I'm sure others on 
this list will add to it.)

Networking should be mono (built in)
Hard drive interfaces (ide, scsi)
FS's mono (ext2, reiser, fat if your root is on reiser)
Virtual terminals
Chipset bugfixes

Those should keep you safe, everything else is pretty much fair game for 
modules.  (I should mention, I don't use modules at all, If I need it, it's 
in the kernel.)
