I think that they are not ignored this release, but a warning gets
printed about them every time a module gets loaded. So how about:
Warnings are now printed about files without a .conf suffix in
/etc/modprobe.d as these will no longer work with the next release.
This will generate a lot of output on bootup if .pacsave files are left
in this folder.
