Most of the tuner modules rely on i2c-core and other stuff so you cannot 
avoid that being called. I only removed the exact drivers which the 
'top' module uses.

You could try using modinfo, but it will not necessarily disclose the 
hardware modules upon which the top driver depends. At least that's the 
situation with this card: the other two modules are not "dependencies" 
listed by modinfo.
