Such thing should be brought up to our lists before they hit the repo.

All files in /etc/depmod.d/ and /etc/modprobe.d/ are ignored
here. So module blacklisting doesn't work there for users/admins. We
need to fix https://bugs.archlinux.org/task/27846 to allow admins to
blacklist modules again.

The only place that works here is /lib/modprobe.d/foo.conf

Should we rebuild all packages that right now put files
into /etc/modprobe.d/ ? Can somebody with a full svn checkout do a grep
to get a list?
