Much time in insmod of huge kernel module

I'm using Linux-2.6.14. My application is having one kernel module of large size(approx 8MB), insmoding of that kernel module is taking pretty much time(approx 8Mins). Is there a way to reduce the insmod time? I tried even by modprobe also.

Config::Model::Approx - Approx configuration file editor SYNOPSIS
use Config::Model ; my $model = Config::Model -> new ( ) ; my $inst = $model->instance (root_class_name => 'Approx'); my $root = $inst -> config_root ; $root->load("distribution:multimedia=") ; $inst->write_back() ; DESCRIPTION
This module provides a configuration model for Approx. Then Config::Model provides a graphical editor program for /etc/approx/approx.conf. See config-edit-approx more help. This module and Config::Model can also be used from Perl programs to modify safely the content of /etc/approx/approx.conf. Once this module is installed, you can run: # config-edit-approx The Perl API is documented in Config::Model and mostly in Config::Model::Node. Functions These functions are declared in Approx configuration models and are called back. read (object => approx_root>, io_handle => ...) Read approx.conf and load the data in the "approx_root" configuration tree. write (object => approx_root>, io_handle => ...) Write data from the "approx_root" configuration tree into approx.conf.
