Changes compared to -1:
- Fixed path: /lib/pkgconfig -> /usr/lib/pkgconfig
- Rewrote load-modules.sh:
   + Fixes http://bugs.archlinux.org/task/10972
     This adds a new resolve-modalias binary, which resolves an alias
     without resolving the dependencies (modprobe can't do that). If you
     have a device which can be used by modules A and B, blacklisting A
     will no longer result in B being blacklisted with it.
     resolve-modalias has gcc-libs as a dependency, but gcc-libs is in
     base anyway, so it shouldn't matter.
   + Adds more comprehensive messages to /var/log/everything.log
     including a reason why a module hasn't been loaded.
   + If you want to disable a device completely, you can blacklist the
     modalias to prevent all matching modules from being loaded.
   This should make rc.conf blacklisting way more intuitive.
- Fixed 80-drivers.rules: This was horribly broken, as modprobe was
   often called instead of load-modules.sh and thus blacklisting was
   completely disabled in -1,
- Add only framebuffer drivers to the framebuffer blacklist, not random
   modules containing the string 'fb'

Packages are available for i686 and x86_64 now, please sign off.
