With module-init-tools being declared a dead project by its current maintainer,
a new project has stepped up to take its place: kmod. This is intended to be a
drop-in replacement, though deprecated functionality in module-init-tools has
not been reimplemented.

If, upon upgrade, pacman moves `/etc/modprobe.d/modprobe.conf` to a .pacsave,
you should move it back. This file, and any other config read by module-init-
tools, is still read by kmod. However, the kmod package will no longer include a
blank config file. You'll find the same (if not more) documentation in the
manpages and --help output for the binaries.
